  The characters and events in this book are fictitious. Any similarity to real persons, living or dead, with the exception of Angharad and the author’s daughter, is coincidental and not intended by the author.

  Dedication

  This book is dedicated to my wife, my daughter, the memory of Angharad, and all those who have helped in its production.

  Thanks to Bobbie Crawford-McCoy for “(Past)”, as it appears throughout this book. It is part of the story that visions of Edward mix with thoughts about him, and with my own life. Perhaps this will help separate them.

  Thanks to “The Medieval Technology Company” for the sword image used on the front cover of printed copies of this edition.

  Introduction to the interactive Edition

  In an eBook it is possible to include links and Internet devices that are not possible in a printed book. There are links spread throughout this book, some from the website www.edwardstafford.co.uk (where you will find many more) while others are new to this edition. You will find they add new dimensions to the story, and allow you to explore what History thinks of some of the characters, there are places described that you can now see. I have tested the links on my iPad and PDF reader but, if you find any fault, please report it to me. Because links require the Internet they will not work on a tablet which does not have an active Internet connection. Having clicked a link, you will have to close your browser and re-open the tablet’s library to return to the page you were on (just 2 touches of the screen).

  The electronic revolution has made it possible to reduce the separation between writer and reader, allowing a book to become more of a conversation. If you have any comments or contributions please email me, mikevoyce@yahoo.co.uk and I will do my best to respond.

  Although the text of Edward has not changed since I first published, the book you are about to read has acquired a life of its own. Most of the developments can be found on the website, but I have noticed subtle shifts in reality, prompting the second website, www.MikeVoyce.com and the Blogtalkradio show, Reincarnation, the Secrets of Past Lives. You are also welcome to join in these.

  As to the book itself, Edward is a Love Story, an Adventure Story; it’s about one of the most turbulent times in English History, and it takes you behind the scenes normally portrayed. Edward is also about me, and the astonishing way the story came to me. Most of all, it’s a story from the life.

  Here is a more personal video INTRODUCTION on the Edward Stafford website.
