Book Description

A Soldier's Shame . . . It is 1882 and British officer Harry Feversham has it all: a loving fiancé e, the camaraderie of fellow soldiers, a bright future in a nation at the height of its imperial power. But before he is deployed to battle in Africa, he resigns -- and receives white feathers, symbols of cowardice, from three friends . . . and then a fourth from his fiancee. A Love Lost . . . Ethne Eustace has pushed Harry out of her life, but not out of her mind. Still, when another suitor comes calling she makes a decision that could destroy Harry . . . and alter her life forever. A Heroic Redemption . . . His world in tatters, Harry goes undercover in Africa to win back the respect of his comrades. From the bustling markets of Cairo to the sizzling sands of Omdurman Prison, he fights with everything he has to bring honor back to his name . . . and Ethne back to his heart.
