new Lindsey Davis

US Release Date: October 27, 2009

Description: "Rebels and Traitors" is a ground-breaking departure for this most admired of British authors, returning to Lindsey's first love in historical fiction, the English Civil War. Sweeping in scope and fraught with the same drama and passion, Lindsey's epic novel does the same for this conflict as Margaret Mitchell's "Gone with the Wind" did for the American Civil War. "Rebels and Traitors" is a masterpiece of historical storytelling which tells with startling realism what it was like to have fought in the front line of the battles and politics of the era. It tells the story of a man, Gideon Jukes and a woman Juliana Lovell, caught on opposite sides of the Parliamentarian/Royalist divide but fated to be brought together by adversity, loss and mutual attraction. But before this can happen, the terrible events of the seven years that King Charles waged war on his own people must be endured, and then, the day in January 1649 when the world was turned upside down and the King was executed. It is in this crucible that Gideon and Juliana love will be forged.


  1. Another one for my list - thanks.

  2. I just added it to my TBR. It looks good!

  3. This looks great! I am reading The King's General by Daphne du Maurier atm, so this should be right up my alley!

  4. I'm curious about this. I don't really like her Roman mysteries, but I'd give this a shot.

  5. oh I like the sound of this one. Added to the TBR!

  6. I too like the sound of this. I love my English Civil War fiction when I can find it. (Though I am awfully picky.)
