Run with the Hare, Hunt with the Hound by Paul Duffy

I am delighted today to be joining the Coffee Pot Book Club blog tour to shine the spotlight on Run with the Hare, Hunt with the Hound, an historical novel by Paul Duffy. It was published in October 2022 by Cynren Press.

What is the book about?

On a remote Gaelic farmstead in medieval Ireland, word reaches Alberic of conquering Norman knights arriving from England. Oppressed by the social order that enslaved his Norman father, he yearns for the reckoning he believes the invaders will bring—but his world is about to burn. Captured by the Norman knight Hugo de Lacy and installed at Dublin Castle as a translator, Alberic’s confused loyalties are tested at every turn. When de Lacy marches inland, Alberic is set on a collision course with his former masters amidst rumours of a great Gaelic army rising in the west. Can Alberic navigate safely through revenge, lust and betrayal to find his place amidst the birth of a kingdom in a land of war?
