‘The White Tower’, the much-awaited childrens adventure sequel that sees two boys and a girl plunged into a thrilling journey back to Tudor times, has now been released.
‘The White Tower’ (£6.99, Bramley Publishing) tells the story of Jonathan Williams, Ben Straker and Victoria Taylor, who travel back to Tudor England to rescue their friend and mentor, the Gleeman. Whilst there, they quickly become aware of the underlying tension of that period…a tension tht culminates in the terrifying flames of a public execution while they are trying to escape back to the twenty-first century.
‘The White Tower’ is the second instalment in the adventures of the trio, a story which started in the first book ‘One Sun, One Moon, Two Stars’, released in 2009. ‘One Sun, One Moon, Two Stars’ has sold hundreds of copies since it was first released, spurring author Margaret Armand Smith to complete the sequel this year.
“I have been thrilled with the response I have received for ‘One Sun, One Moon, Two Stars’ and was eager to share their second adventure through Tudor England. What has been even more surprising is that even though I have written the stories for children aged 8-12 years, many adults are reading them too, “ explains Margaret.
Margaret prepared for the book by conducting historical research to ensure the accuracy of their experiences during Tudor times.
The level of detail Margaret includes in her books has been actively recognised by several of her local schools, who have used ‘One Sun, One Moon, Two Stars’ as part of lesson plans covering grammar, composition, history and geography.
“I want my books to help educate children as well as inspire them creatively, so it was important to me that the experiences of Jonathan, Ben and Victoria were as true to life as possible. In The White Tower, Queen Mary really does get married at Winchester and so there are some references to true historical events, even though the tale itself is a fantasy adventure.”
Margaret is busy planning the trio’s third adventure, which she says will take place in the more recent setting of the 1950s.
“The White Tower is available from Bramley Publishing for £6.99 + £1.39 P&P. For more details visit www.margaretarmandsmith.co.uk
