FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TREAD SOFTLY ON MY DREAMS
“Fabulous, exotic, engrossing … fresh and authentic in every detail … it has to be the best book I have read about the British in India since M. M. Kaye’s "The Far Pavilions" – Dr Aileen Keegan.
A complete stand-alone novel - and also the first in "The Macquarie Series".
Set in the beauty of Scotland, the magic of India, and the hostility of China, peopled with memorable characters of all races, By Eastern Windows is the story of a young British soldier, Lachlan Macquarie, posted to India where he meets Jane Jarvis, a young girl from the Caribbean – beautiful, different and exciting – who becomes the greatest love, and the greatest tragedy, of his life.
It is also the story of the young men who travelled with him, far from home, serving their King in a country they came to love, while coping with the complex differences between East and West.
THIS IS THE NEVER-BEFORE-TOLD STORY OF LACHLAN MACQUARIE'S YOUNG LIFE, BEFORE HE LATER WENT ON TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEN OF HIS TIME, WHEN, WITH EXTRAORDINARY INTELLIGENCE AND A DEEP COMPASSION FOR THE INHABITANTS, HE TURNED A NEGLECTED CONVICT COLONY INTO A COUNTRY, AND NAMED IT "AUSTRALIA".
