Love and Mutiny: Tales from British India

Anne George has a new cover for her debut historical novel, Love and Mutiny: Tales from British India, designed by yours truly! Anne decided the cover she originally published didn't quite capture the emotional themes of her novel, so she turned to me for help, and I was happy to oblige.

Before & After:


Here's the book description:

Reared in India, Edwina Hardingham loves her country and cannot imagine an existence away from it. Equally at home in the vibrant society of members of the East India Company in Calcutta and in the cool clime of Simla, at the foothills of the Himalayas, she enjoys undisturbed calm until confronted with love and mutiny. When the dashing Mr. Grayson rescues her from the hands of brigands in Calcutta, she develops a tenderness for him, which not even the ill-humoured Mr. Davenport can discourage.

All is changed, however, when the long-suffering sepoys of India revolt against the inequitable rule of the East India Company in 1857. Torn between worry for her family, now imperiled by the distraught mutineers, and the man she loves, Edwina must learn to hold her peace until a happy outcome ensues.

Will she find joy with the man she loves? Does her family escape unscathed from the ravages of war? Read this gripping novel—set during real events of the First War of Indian Independence—to find out. 

Love and Mutiny is available now in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Anne's website for more information on her writing and her journeys in publishing.
