By Eastern Windows
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 … While back in Scotland, Elizabeth Campbell can’t forget the young lieutenant whom she loved on first sight, even though she was only twelve at the time. Now she is growing, and still wondering about him.
It is also the story of the young soldiers who travelled with Lachlan to India, far from home, serving their king in a country they came to love, while coping with the complex differences between East and West.
