Welcome to this weeks instalment of TBR Thursday! This is where I randomly pick a book on my TBR pile/list/mountain and give you, my readers, the cover and blurb! There really is no set order to this. Anyone can join in, just make sure you tag me, so I can see what you have on our ever growing mountains!
TBR Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly Faye Reads, where you post a title from your shelf or e-reader and find out what others think about it.
George Hart was always an outsider. Bullied at school for his suspiciously dark skin and lack of a father, Hart soon learns to fight—and win. At 18, his world is shaken by his mother’s revelation that he is the bastard son of an important general in the British Army, who is willing to give him a vast inheritance—provided he can prove himself worthy of the prize. At a time when racism and prejudice are rife, and an impeccable background is vital to acceptance in Victorian society, Hart struggles to come to terms with his identity, and, leaving the army, he decides to head to South Africa, and a fresh start. But George Hart has soldiering in his blood, and once in Africa the urge to rejoin the army is strong. Ready for battle but hoping for peace, Hart is caught between two fierce and unyielding forces as Britain heads for war with the Zulus. Hart must make a choice—and fight for his life.
