A sequel to Jack O' Beans that happily stands alone. Jack's adventures continue as he becomes both outlaw and lover. It is thirteen years since Jack was taken to live in Dudley Castle in the English Midlands. Now a strapping young man, he's enrolled as a guard in the service of the Baron. But once again a chain of events leads him as his long-suffering grandmother into the new and unexpected dangers. Join him on this entertaining and sometimes reflective romp through a vibrant period of history. With a likeable young protagonist firmly planted at its centre, this is an enjoyable and lively read. Partly serialised by the 'Black Country Bugle' under the titles: Jack in the Stocks, and Jack in the Citadel of the Giants.
