Beloved Exile

(1993)
A novel by

 
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.
