From the acclaimed author of THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND, LADYSMITH is a compelling tale of a town under siege during the Boer War, inspired by the letters of the author's great-grandfather
'Captivating ... A highly accomplished historical novel' Washington Post 'Superbly described ... achieves a subtle, disconcerting effect' New York Review of Books In the dying days of the 19th century, the world's eyes turn to the small South African town of Ladysmith. Under siege from Boer forces, British soldiers and townsfolk wait for rescue. They try to keep their spirits up with parties and cricket matches, but General Buller's relief column cannot break through. All that arrives is danger, disease and starvation. Amongst a cast of characters ranging from Irish Republican renegades to London literary editors, from Churchill to Gandhi, is one young woman. For Bella Kiernan, the siege represents an unexpected chance to rebel against constricting social and domestic bonds and pursue a life of romance and adventure.
