The Spanish Patriot by Nicky PenttilaPublication Date: September 3, 2015 Wondrous Press
Formats: eBook, Paperback, Audio
Genre: Historical Fiction
READ AN EXCERPT
Some fly to war. Others flee it. No one is safe. When the British army is sent into Spain to help expel Napoleon’s invaders, nothing goes as expected. Not for London newsman Sam Kerr, hunting a story that will win him the editor’s chair, who discovers one that could wreck his career. Not for the Wakefield family, loyalist refugees from America seeking peace among people of their faith, who find war has followed them even here. And certainly not for the British troops, whose mission of support turns into a fight for all their lives. Historical fiction set in Corunna 1808.

PRAISE FOR AN UNTITLED LADY
“Penttila shows a deft hand with complex, believable characterizations that accurately reflect the historical period.”–Publishers Weekly
“The social turmoil in Manchester leading to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 is the unusual setting for Penttila’s quietly stunning, memorable debut novel. A very highly recommended book.”–Historical Novel Society
ABOUT THE AUTHORNicky Penttila writes stories with adventure, ideas, history, and love. She enjoys coming up with stories that are set in faraway cities and countries, because then she *must* travel there, you know, for research.
