Blood Divide

A novel of Flodden Field


The Battle of Flodden in September 1513 was one of the bloodiest battles ever fought on British soil, in which James IV, King of Scots, virtually the whole of his nobility and gentry were annihilated in an afternoon along with 15,000 soldiers. Five centuries on and the slaughter still occupies a core position in the Scottish nationalist debate and in the pantheon of heroic failures. This novel puts you in the heart of the action; you’ll feel the sweat and the fear, the curtain of red mist. The narrative covers the period AprilSeptember 1513, focusing around a handful of key characters: John Heron, Bastard of Ford, swaggering, violent and disreputable, the black sheep of a good English family; Sir Thomas Howard, leader of the English forces, a skilled strategist; Alexander, 3rd Lord Hume, leader of the Scots, bold but impetuous; Isabella Hoppringle, Abbess of Coldstream, hub of a web of influential women throughout the Scottish borders, a woman of significant influence and charisma.
