The Jug and Hare Bathhouse by Graham Williams


Here's an interesting story for you in the historical fiction realm! Take a look at this excerpt from The Jug and Hare Bathhouse by Graham Williams and then follow the tour for even more. Leave your thoughts along the way. Best of luck entering the giveaway!

The book deals with a timeless subject, which is as relevant today as it was at the time of King James – the abduction and sexual abuse of children. It is handled sensitively and a distinction is drawn between same-sex, loving partnerships and the cruel use of children bought and sold for the sexual gratification of often wealthy “clientele”.

The story and plot are exciting and well-balanced, with the right amount of tension to make you want to keep on reading. There is a real sense of being in London in the reign of King James and an atmospheric feeling about the taverns, shops and streets as well as the bathhouse itself, all linked to the river Thames and famous theatres of the time. The characters are great and very believable and the action scenes well-written and full of high adventure. It also comes to an uplifting and optimistic conclusion, with some surprising and joyful twists.

Read a sample from the book on Amazon:

Being retired, I have the time now to write and tell stories. I am registered as blind, and I am profoundly dyslexic, and I rely on the wonders of technology to bring out my stories, and to live. I spend many hours walking around London, as this is where I find most of my inspiration from. The places; sounds and smells of the city, I have a love for. To know one's history is to know one's self. I hope you enjoy them.



Graham Williams will be awarding $25 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.
