Set in the beauty of Scotland, the magic of India, and the hostility of China, peopled with memorable characters of all races.
By Eastern Windows is the story of a young British officer, Lachlan Macquarie, who is posted to India where he meets Jane Jarvis, a young girl from the Caribbean – different, exotic and exciting – who becomes the greatest love and the greatest tragedy of his life.
It is also the story of the young men who travelled with him, far from home, serving their king in a country they came to love, while coping with the complex differences between East and West.
“Fabulous and heartbreaking … fresh and authentic in every detail … it has to be the best book I have read about the British in India since M. M. Kaye’s The Far Pavilions – Dr Aileen Keegan.
