If You Like P.F. Chisholm Books, You’ll Love…

A Famine of Horses is the first book in the Sir Robert Carey series. The book takes place in 1592 when Carey comes to the Carlisle to start his new position as the Deputy Warden of the West March. He took this position in order to be closer to his (married) true love and away from his disapproving father, but he soon finds that the job is not going to be easy. A local lad has been murdered and hundreds of horses have been stolen, Carey finds his plate full and plenty to deal with in his new job.

Another good book in the series is A Plague of Angels. In this book, Carey is summoned back to London by his father. The two don’t have a great relationship, but his father needs Carey’s help to sort out some difficulties that Carey’s older brother has got himself into. He’s innocent of course, but there is a plot to discredit the family and Carey needs to find a way out of it. Carey will run into many persons known to history such as George Greene, Christopher Marlowe, and a love-sick William Shakespeare.
