ABOUT THE BOOK

In a time of turmoil and religious upheaval, a village in West Saxony stands witness to a brutal event that sends shockwaves through the lives of its inhabitants. Nathan Driscoll's Reformation takes us back to the heart of medieval Europe, where life hangs by a thread, with faith and fear fuelled by the ambitions of powerful men, morphing together.

In the aftermath of an attack on an abbey, Sister Mary embarks on a treacherous journey through the forest, haunted by the memory of Brother Wilhem's gruesome fate. As she seeks refuge and aid from a nearby monastery, the turmoil of the times and the fragility of life become starkly evident. Meanwhile, within the confines of a tavern, soldiers revel in their pay, unaware of the echoes of their actions. Among them, a soldier named Claus boasts of his allegiance to God's will, indifferent to the lives he's taken. But his world is about to collide with an unexpected revelation, which will eventually catch up with him.

As the story unfolds, intertwining the lives of soldiers, villagers, the nobility and those within the church, secrets surface, revealing unexpected connections and hidden motives. Amidst the chaos, Hette, the tavern keeper, makes a desperate plea for absolution, seeking to ease the burden of guilt haunting one young woman, Gezel, whose life bears the weight of her father's tragic fate. Reformation delves deep into the complexities of faith, morality, and the consequences of territorial claims in a time of uncertainty and change.

Nathan Driscoll weaves a gripping narrative that explores the collision of beliefs, the pursuit of redemption, and the profound impact of choices made in the shadows of medieval Europe.
