A Black Englishman, Paperback


A Black Englishman is an epic and intimate novel about love and loyalty, revenge and faith, race and identity, and what it takes to be human.

India, 1920: exotic, glamorous and wrenching away from Britain's colonial grip, only to be thrown into religious violence and terrorism.

Isabel, a young woman in search of herself and in flight from the ravages of the Great War, has married a career soldier whose brutality and cruelty sicken her.

Upon arrival in India she is thrust headlong into a passionate and dangerous liaison with Sam, an Indian doctor who insists, against all the odds, on the right to be both black and British. 'This is a fine novel in which character and situation are perfectly balanced against a dramatic and perennially fascinating historical watershed.' Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail
