First edition thus. This title was first published in Great Britain in 1980 under the title The Lofty Banners by Brenda Clarke. Fine in dust jacket. It is 1642, and civil war is beginning to split England in half. The Cavaliers swear loyalty to the Crown; the Puritans vow to risk all for liberty and their mighty, wrathful God. Beautiful Lilias Pride faces the hardest choice of her life. Married to Richard Pride, MP for Bristol, she devoted her loyalty to him and to the Puritan cause. Yet Priam Lithgow, Royalist Earl of Chelwood, stirs her deeply, and when he falls into danger, she risks her life to save his. With the Restoration, Lilias hopes to flee love and peril and find safety in the New World of America. Yet she cannot escape her heart - or her destiny.
