Summary

England 1642: a nation divided. England is at war with itself. King Charles and Parliament each gather soldiers to their banners. Across the land men prepare to fight for their religious and political ideals. Civil war has begun; a family ripped asunder.
The Rivers are landed gentry, and tradition dictates that their allegiance is to the King. Sir Francis' loyalty to the crown and his desire to protect his family will test them all. As the men march to war, so the women are left to defend their home against a ruthless enemy. Just as Edmund, the eldest of Sir Francis' sons, will do his duty, so his brother Tom will turn his back on all he once believed in....
A war that will change everything. From the raising of the King's Standard at Nottingham to the butchery and blood of Edgehill, Edmund and Tom Rivers will each learn of honour, sacrifice, hatred, and betrayal as they follow their chosen paths through this most savage of wars.

English Civil War & family feuds

I eventually got into it, I tjink the narrator took a bit of getting used to, but I enjoyed the battles and the story leaves an obvious sequel coming along.

Gripping listen.

This Bleeding Land has transferred from book to audio very well. The narrator is fantastic. He has a very pleasant voice and his mimicry of the characters is excellent.

I often buy audio books to help me relax and drop off to sleep, but this one kept me up for ages, wanting to find out what happened next.

I would recommend this audio book.
