Storyline

Cromwell's regime is firmly established and maintain by bloody military terror. Its illegality is obvious to many, including Honest John Lilburn, who ends up siding with the opposition, yet secures acquittal at his jury trial despite hostile turncoat judges he brilliantly exposes. Sexby accepts a colonel-ship to defend England's back-door in the Irish campaign, and stays loyal despite Cromwell making a liar of him by denying his mediating promises to mutineers, the leaders of which he executes. Angelica is nearly executed and separates from her husband to join the egalitarian diggers. Written by KGF Vissers
