Mistress Yale's Diaries, The Glorious Return (Paperback)

£10.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

1689 and the wife of English East India Company Governor Elihu Yale risks the six-month sea voyage from old Madras to her home in London with her youngest children. But after twenty years away, it's a city Catherine now barely recognises - built anew after the Great Fire and occupied by William the Third's soldiers in the wake of the Glorious Revolution. Yet some things never change, and the secrets she thought she'd left behind in Fort St. George soon return to torment her. An old rival, a long-lost friend and a bitter enemy soon draw her back into a world of espionage, revenge and brutal danger. Her husband may still be on the far side of the world but his reach seems very long indeed.



"Ebsworth has used historical fiction tools skillfully to put together Catherine Yale's astonishing story, essentially from the blank space in her husband's will. Recommended."



Waheed Rabbani, Historical Novel Society and author of the 'Azadi' series



"Mistress Yale is a phenomenon - compassionate and courageous, she misses nothing and viewing the seventeenth century world through her well-travelled eyes is a rare treat. A feat of immaculate research and world-building."



Deborah Swift, best-selling author of 'Pleasing Mister Pepys', 'A Divided Inheritance' and the 'Highway' series

David Ebsworth is the pen name of writer Dave McCall, a former negotiator for Britain's Transport & General Workers' Union. He was born in Liverpool but has lived in Wrexham, North Wales, with his wife Ann since 1981. Following his retirement, Dave began to write historical fiction in 2009 and has subsequently published six novels: political thrillers dealing with the 1745 Jacobite rebellion, the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War, the Battle of Waterloo, warlord rivalry in sixth century Britain, and the Spanish Civil War. His sixth book, 'Until the Curtain Falls' returns to that same Spanish conflict, following the story of journalist Jack Telford, and is published in Spanish under the title 'Hasta Que Caiga el Telon'. Jack Telford, as it happens, is also the main protagonist in a separate novella, 'The Lisbon Labyrinth'. Each of Dave's novels has been critically acclaimed by the Historical Novel Society and been awarded the coveted B.R.A.G. Medallion for independent authors. This eighth novel, 'Mistress Yale, The Glorious Return', is the second in a trilogy about the life of nabob, philanthropist (and slave-trader) Elihu Yale, who gave his name to Yale University, but told through the eyes of his much-maligned and largely forgotten wife, Catherine.
