Read full description of the books:
1853, Khunobad Province, India.
Captain Rowan DeMayne has served for six boring years with the 43rd Light Dragoons in an isolated Indian outpost. He and his comrades-in-arms yearn for honour and glory in battle.
Mary Clarke, born in a barrack room and twice widowed at eighteen, yearns only to rise above her lowly destiny. To avoid a third marriage she takes on menial work in the fetid camp hospital, and there tends Rowan, who is suffering terrible wounds on return from a dangerous solo mission.
The long-awaited call to arms is cheered by the 43rd, but the war is in the Crimea, where they are to replace the lost Light Brigade. They must cross oceans and continents for the glory they desire, taking with them wives, children, furniture, horses, equipment and weapons. During this hazardous trek, Rowan is forced to compare his self-centred wife with Mary, a true daughter of the regiment.
Socially poles apart, the pair are slowly drawn close by the demands of war and they have to face painful reality when they reach journey’s end at the gates of Sebastopol …
Faced with unimaginable horrors, Mary and Rowan find themselves looking to each other, casting a light in what seems like interminable darkness…
Society holds them apart, but can war bring them together at last?
