Alice Lisle

The trial of Alice Lisle at the 'Bloody Assizes' of Judge Jeffreys after Monmouth's rebellion of 1685 is one of England's most celebrated miscarriages of justice. This is the only occasion where Edward Rutherfurd incorporates a historical person into a fictional family tree. The story and trial appear in THE FOREST: 'Alice'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
