Melvyn Bragg’s new novel is set in 1381 when the people of England marched on London to protest against unfair taxes, corruption and to demonstrate their complete loss of faith in authority. The Peasant’s Revolt was the biggest rebellion in English history.
Now Is The Time powerfully captures all the passion and patriotism of this extraordinary struggle between those in power and the apparently powerless.
