Seventeen-century England.

In a remote Derbyshire village, over three hundred years ago, a man tried to serve his God to the best of his belief... but at a terrible cost to himself and others.

He believed he was following Divine instructions.

But was he a hero or a fool?

William Mompesson is the new Rector of Eyam.

He is young, handsome, and has a lovely family.

Life is too easy in the countryside, as his wife and children enjoy his generous income and the apathetic locals do not require much spiritual guidance.

Mompesson's greatest daily challenge is for the souls of his parishoners, as paganism and the famous dissenter Thomas Stanley vie for the attention of the people.

But he soon faces a great test as the Plague comes to town, possibly in the crate with his sister-in-law's wedding dress.

As his parishioners die one after another, how can Mompesson reconcile God and the wedding dress?

Set during the tumultuous reign of King Charles II, 'God and the Wedding Dress' is a gripping piece of historical fiction from a prolific author in the genre.

Born in 1885, Marjorie Bowen (pseudonym of Margaret Gabrielle Vere Campbell Long) was one of Britain's most prolific authors of the twentieth century. Writing was more than just a hobby: her works were the primary source of financial support for her family. Between 1906 and her death in 1952, Bowen wrote over 150 books (under a variety of names), garnering much acclaim for her popular histories and historical and gothic romances. Alongside masterful descriptions and concise, efficient prose, she deftly rendered larger-than-life subjects in the minds of her readers. To this day, aficionados of Gothic horror and historical novels covet Bowen's work. Several of her novels were adapted as films.
