ELIZABETH FYTTON OF
GAWSWORTH HALL

£9.99
UK POSTAGE FREE

(Liz Howard)
The true story of Liz Howard's incredible experience of hypnotic
regression detailing a lifetime lived in Tudor England as "Elizabeth Fytton of Gawsworth Hall". It is the tale of Elizabeth Fytton from childhood,
through her love affair with William Brereton to her death and the horrific
murder of a new born baby boy in Wiltshire. Subsequent research proved that all the characters in the story except one
actually existed, but how did Liz Howard's subconscious mind blend historical fact with unsolved historical mysteries to create a Tudor love
story which has more than a ring of truth
