When a Child is Born

When a Child is Born

A Chronicles of St Mary’s short story that is sure to entertain. If you love Jasper Fforde or Ben Aaronovitch, you won’t be able to resist Jodi Taylor.

It’s Christmas Day 1066 and a team from St Mary’s is going to witness the coronation of William the Conqueror. Or so they think…

However, History seems to have different plans for them and when Max finds herself delivering a child in a peasant’s hut, she can’t help wondering what History is up to.

Readers love Jodi Taylor:

‘Once in a while, I discover an author who changes everything… Jodi Taylor and her protagonista Madeleine “Max” Maxwell have seduced me’

‘A great mix of British proper-ness and humour with a large dollop of historical fun

Addictive. I wish St Mary’s was real and I was a part of it’

‘Jodi Taylor has an imagination that gets me completely hooked

‘A tour de force’
