Where Soldiers LieBook - 2006
India, 1857: the keystone of the British Empire. For Jack O'Hara-farmed out to a distant aunt and uncle after his parents die-it is an exotic place of wonder and mystery. But horrors he can barely imagine are waiting just around the corner. This is Cawnpore and within a few days, Jack, his soldier friend, Tommy, Alice, the girl he dreams about, and 1,000 soldiers, women, and children will be desperately fighting for their lives in an inadequate entrenchment surrounded by the mutineering Indian Army. Who, if any, will survive as the tragedy unfolds around them? Praise for Where Soldiers Lie : "Wilson's story is action-packed, violent and hard hitting. He has developed strong characters capable of generating feelings of empathy as we follow the hardships they endure throughout the course of the novel." - Canadian Review of Materials
