Blossom of War is an unforgettable tale of romance and mystery set against the horrors of the Crimean War.
Tales of lies, deceit and war forge the background to this historical novel. Although based on true events, all the characters are fictional apart from the well-known public figures. These include Timmy the Tortoise – a ship’s mascot in the Crimean War, the last surviving veteran of the war.
‘So! You have no recollection of leaving the battlefield at Balaclava?’ Sir Berkeley Mountjoy Q.C. boomed into a hushed courtroom in Westminster Hall. ‘No, sir,’ mumbled the man on the witness-stand. ‘There is much, still, I don’t remember.’
Blossom of War will appeal to fans of historical fiction, and readers with an particular interest in the Crimean War.
