Women All on Fire by Alison Plowden

Book Description

The Royalists included Queen Henrietta, who went abroad to raise money for the cause, and Mary Bankes who held Corfe Castle for the king with her daughters, heaving stones and hot embers over the battlements at the attacking Roundheads. On the opposing side, Lady Brillia Harley guarded Brampton Bryan Castle in Herefordshire against the Royalists and Anne Fairfax, wife of Cromwell's northern general, who was taken prisoner by the Duke of Newcastle's troops after Adwalton Moor. Also featured are the oyster wenches of London, who laboured beside the men digging trenches around the City; the women who helped prisoners escape, such as Anne Murray who provided a disguise for the Duke of York, and Jane Lane and Juliana Coningsby who risked their lives for Charles II in his flight from Worcester, and those of lesser rank who loaded muskets and passed ammunition.
