Publisher's Summary

In thirteenth-century Britain, Gerald Warbow, legendary archer to the king, prepares to pass on the torch…once he’s dealt with William Wallace.…

Having fought valiantly for Lord–now King–Edward, Gerald Warbow has settled into the life of a country gentleman. He has a comfortable life with a wife he loves and three growing–if occasionally irritating–children. Conscious that time is passing, Gerald devotes his time to farming and to training local archers, including his eldest son, Hamo.

But the call of duty is never far away.

The mysterious death of King Alexander of Scotland in 1286, and subsequent questions of succession, have plunged that nation into turmoil. In Wales, trouble still abounds. And as discontent threatens to spill over on several fronts, Gerald is once again called into action for his king and his people.

The Great Cause is the fifth book in Griff Hosker’s acclaimed Lord Edward’s Archer series, and takes the listener on an immersive journey through medieval England, Wales, and Scotland with great attention to detail and striking accuracy. It is essential listening for all fans of the series, for anyone interested in military and medieval history and for all who appreciate good historical fiction.

Griff Hosker qualified as an English and Drama teacher in 1972 and worked in the North East of England for the next 35 years. During that time he wrote plays, pantos, and musicals for his students. He then set up his own consultancy firm and worked as an adviser in schools and colleges. The financial crash of 2010 ended that avenue of work, and he found that he had time on his hands. Griff started researching the Roman invasion of Britain and began to create a novel.

Good story, inappropriate reader

I am a fan of Griff Hosker’s stories, but the wrong reader here almost ruins this one.
