A few may know the true story of her lover, George Cutteford, the puritan lawyer who died illegally imprisoned in the horror of Lydford Gaol, persecuted by Mary's fourth husband - Sir Richard Grenville, the most notorious and sadistic royalist general in the Civil War. But fewer still will know the secrets George Cutteford died to protect - secrets that would destroy his own family; end Grenville's career in shame; and make a boy with no name the richest landowner in Devon. Gathered from the varying historical accounts, and with new primary matieral unearthed in an old fish market in London, comes this haunting true story of love, treachery and revenge in seventeenth-century Devon."@en ;
