The Books

The Yorkshire Saga is a series of historical fiction books set in Yorkshire, in the north of England. The story begins in 1763 in Commondale, a hamlet on the North Yorkshire Moors. It follows the start of the Hurst family, and subsequent generations, embracing landscape, local history, folklore and tales of life. Whilst there are historical notes at the end of the books, I find I could write more, and decided to start a blog looking at various aspects of folklore and history that appear in the stories.

Please note these are works of fiction and the characters are the product of the author’s imaginations. Whilst some actual historical figures appear, they feature as heavily fictionalised versions of themselves.
