D: Darkest Beginnings by Chris Turnbull
(Prequel to Whitby’s Darkest Secret)
What makes a young boy turn to the darkness?
What turns an honest man into a monster?
In this prequel to Whitby’s Darkest Secret, journey back and learn about the life of the boy, who grew up to become known simply as ‘D’
D: Darkest Beginnings is the background story of the man known only as D!
It’s a quick and easy read chronicling the life and misfortunes of a young, nameless, orphan boy, left to the harsh regime of a workhouse at the tender age of five.
He’s bullied from day one in the workhouse, and by various antagonist as he grows up, and then finally hit by tragedy the day before his wedding.
I will definitely be reading the other books in the series, and have already started D: Whitby’s Darkest Secret, as I am curious to know what becomes of this young man!
