Young Henry Clifford, heir to vast estates in the North of England, is spirited away after the Battle of Towton for fear that the Yorkists will take his life in reprisal against his father's actions. He is brought up as a simple shepherd boy so that his noble background does not betray his true identity. Narrated by the shepherd that raised him until it was safe to reveal his lineage and reclaim his birthright, this is a riveting tale contrasting a life on the run against an idyllic pastoral backdrop.
The Shepherd Lord is a tale of identity, roots and nurture. One of an unbreakable and everlasting bond that develops between two people from very different backgrounds. A true story, that has been all but ignored for centuries and is now bursting to be told.
