The Scarlet Princess

(1984)
(The second book in the China series)
A novel by

 
 
The year is 1911, and orphaned teenager Adela Wynne, after growing up in America, is sailing back towards her beloved homeland of China, together with her formidable aunt Constance.

But three thousand years of imperial rule are rapidly coming to an end.

Little does she yet know it, but Adela - the last of the Manchu princesses - is a highly valuable commodity.

Not only does she boast the blood of the Imperial rulers, she has all the characteristics of a true princess: ravishing beauty, regal bearing, keen intelligence, and an over-riding talent for survival.

Adela will need all these things if she is to live through the utter turbulence in which she is shortly to be cast.

Who can she trust? Journalist James Osborne, who seems curiously interested in her from the very first moment they meet? Rebel leader Lin-tu, who in a former life knew both her aunt and mother? And what of the powerful marshal Yuan Shih-k'ai, who is bowled over by her beauty?

The sequel to The Crimson Pagoda, Christopher Nicole's sweeping, dramatic, epic tackles a fascinating period of Chinese history. By turns romantic, gruesome and thrilling, it takes us on a whirlwind journey through some of the final years of Imperial China. And, at the heart of it all, what will become of the tragic, dynamic heroine: The Scarlet Princess?

'The Scarlet Princess' is a captivating historical romance set in Imperial China.

Christopher Nicole was born and brought up in British Guyana and the West Indies. His output of books has been prolific and many of his novels are historical with a Caribbean background.
