Beloved Exile

Iestyn Mortymer, captured during the chartist Rebellion, is tried at the Monmouth Assizes and sentenced to twenty-one years transportation for crimes against Her Imperial Majesty Queen Victoria. Torn from his young wife Mari, he is exiled to Afghanistan - a country as violated and outraged as his native Wales. On all sides Iestyn witnesses signs of increasing hostility towards the English, and of the crumbling edifice of the Empire. Involved in the appalling 'Afghan Promenade' that cost the British army 17,000 lives, caught up by intrigue, murder and deadly deception, he cannot escape the fact that this is a time when every white face in the country is dubbed an Unbeliever, every redcoat a potential target of violence. Yet, despite everything, there is another escape that he is determined to make. Back to Wales... An epic blend of history and fiction, a swirling canvas of politics, war, servitude and passion, BELOVED EXILE marks the glorious culmination of Alexander Cordell's Welsh sagas.
