Martin Hyde: The Duke's Messenger

by John Masefield

Description:  A young country boy living with his uncle in London longs for adventure, when by a strange turn of fate he finds himself swept into the service of the Duke of Monmouth and involved in a web of plots and strange happenings which make a daring lady his enemy and himself an upriser in the Rebellion of 1688. A spirited yet restrained narrative, admirably realizing the atmosphere of the period and sincerely characterizing a brave young lad in his complete fidelity to a lost cause.
