The mutiny : a novel by Julian Rathbone( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For its British population, the India that swelters in the late spring of 1857 is a place of amateur theatricals, horseracing and flirtations under the aegis of the omnipotent East India company. But a brutal awakening lies in store for the complacent British: one May night, after thirty years of abuse, the East India Company's native soldiers rise up against their British officers. Thus begins the most savage episode in our imperial history. Caught up in the violence is pretty Sophie Hardcastle, a young wife and mother newly arrived from England. As she searches for her infant son, missing in the chaos, Sophie finds herself bearing witness to atrocities on both sides. Moving, sombre and thrilling, Rathbone's tale is told on a grand scale, ranging from the Cannings in Government House to the heroism of the humblest soldiers and peasants. It is as exhilarating as any Victorian adventure story, and yet, with its unflinching examination of religious fanaticism and the horrors of war, THE MUTINY also carries a powerful message for the modern world
Birth of a nation : a novel by Julian Rathbone( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Hungarian and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eddie Bosham, the not entirely English agent, is in prison on a murder charge. But he's not worried. He's innocent and, anyway, he has hidden proof of a ghastly scandal that could bring down the monarchy." "Taking up his memoirs from where he was left, marooned on the Galapagos Islands, we find Eddie offering young Charles Darwin an explanation of why the finches on the islands vary. Rescued by an American whaler and set ashore in Acapulco, he makes his way to Texas. Staunchy loyal to whichever side will win, he spies for General Santa Anna at the Alamo and, with the help of Emily Morgan, the ravishingly beautiful Yellow Rose of Texas, for Sam Houston at San Jacinto." "In cahoots with the seemingly prim Kate, Eddie works the Mississippi riverboats as a cardsharp. Caught cheating, he is forced to jump ship and he inadvertently joins the infamous Cherokee Trail of Tears. Westward ho, he stumbles across the secret that will launch the Californian Gold Rush. Finally, having traversed the girth of a nation, his disgraceful saga ends, back east, at a highly inflammatory revivalist meeting. And that's not all - while writing these memoirs, he has been paid to spy on Darwin, whose theories have aroused the interest of the Home Office." "Birth of a Nation is an exploration of the lacunae in official histories. And it demonstrates, as Eddie Bosham does to Darwin, that it is the fittest who survive. But the fittest are not necessarily the biggest or strongest."--BOOK JACKET
