About this title

Synopsis:

A strange, haunting story of two ill-starred lovers, set against the backdrop of the religious upheaval of Henry VIII's time. Hazel, a peasant girl marked by the witches' brand and a dangerous beauty, loves Black John, an outlaw and aristocrat, whom she rescues from the gallows. Together they struggle to survive a world in which brutal death awaits at every corner, and stumble along a fateful collision towards a harrowing climax. Winner of the First Georgette Heyer Historical Novel Prize founded in memory of Georgette Heyer by Bodley Head and Corgi Books. Rhona Martin's remarkable first novel won the award in 1977, its first year, in competition with 150 entries.

About the Author:

Rhona Martin was born in London. Her father came from South Dakota, and her mother was a descendant of the Bishop John Hooper who was burnt at the stake for his religious beliefs by 'Bloody' Queen Mary. She studied art and the history of costume at the Bristol Academy of Art and worked for a time as a theatrical designer. She emerged from marriage with two daughters and a desire to get back into the entertainment world, and then worked in a disco and in cinema management. Five years ago she changed to secretarial work in order to have more time for writing. Gallows Wedding is the result.
