Robert Carey, aged eight.

About The Story

My Lord Hunsdon and his youngest son, Robin, arrive in Berwick in August 1568. Robin is eight years old, old enough to be prenticed. Lord Hunsdon is the new Governor and Robin finds that he is the newest and lowliest stable boy in the huge Berwick Garrison stables. Fearing boredom more than death (or his mother), Robin loves the idea.

Will Robin find his feet amongst the northern lads who say they can’t understand a word he says? And what will happen when the local reiving headmen, who are loyal to the exiled Scottish Queen Mary, find out that he’s there?
