This novel is based on a historical account, going back to early 19th century when Great Britain defeated Napoleon Bonaparte, expanding the empire. That led to the need for considerable manpower. The captain of a ship is not only responsible for navigating the vessel skilfully, but should be a leader to all the naval trainees and junior officers. He should make right decisions which can be harsh, without emotions, for all. This novel tells a story of the kind-hearted Captain Fraser who led his ship to near-disaster on the Thames. After abolition of slavery, the need for farm labourers was filled by a 'new system of slavery' called 'indentured labourers from India'. This novel describes their suffering and what happened to them, which the world hardly knows about.
The author worked as a head and neck cancer surgeon for over forty years. Has been actively involved in three charities, helping to raise funds by completing London Marathon, London-Paris bike ride and others. While looking after a terminally ill patient, he learned the plight of indentured labourers, which he researched and which led to this historical novel.
