Oliver Cromwell’s House is to host an “Audience With Jemahl Evans”, author of ‘The Last Roundhead’, to mark the launch of his second novel ‘This Deceitful Light’.
On Thursday September 21, the audience will be able to hear Jemahl in conversation, as he discusses his love of history and his path to becoming an author.
There will also be a Q&A session afterwards and an opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book.
The second book in the Blandford Candy series, Evans’ newest novel revolves around a murdered actor and English Civil War skulduggery.
Set in the 17th century, it gives a realistic portrait of Cromwell, his unfortunate teenage son and an account of the battle of Marston Moor.

“The event is set to be an engaging evening with a combination of humour and history, held in the very room that features in the novel.”
