Local author, Edwin Woolsey, is excited to announce the fourth book in his Chronicler series, “Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down,” a novelized account of his extended family’s struggles in medieval England during the days of Europe's Black Death – the bubonic plague.
The Chronicler series begins with the Saxon settlement of England where his family’s surname was established in the first book “Wolves of War.” The second book “Ivernia’s Quest” explores a possible Irish branch of the family during the Third Crusade with Richard the Lionheart. Yet to be
written, book three “Nova Anglia” will relate the adventuresome exodus of a large group of disenfranchised Saxon refugees to Roman Byzantium and Crimea following the Norman conquest of England in 1066. Still in development, the fifth book “My Country, 'Tis of Thee,” will chronicle his family's colonial settlement in America. Already published, his sixth book, “Beyond the Father of Waters” relates the Woolsey family history from Illinois to Missouri during the American Civil War to the Great Depression.
Woolsey’s books are available through a variety of online distributors including Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. His books can be purchased in this area at Book Nook in West Plains. His books can also be read at community libraries in both Mountain View and Willow Springs, Missouri.
