Roger Sudden

An Historical Novel of Conflict, Adventure, and Passion

  Author:   Thomas H. Raddall    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

This stirring historical novel is set in Nova Scotia during the English/French rivalry over the possession of North America. Roger Sudden, a cynical and impoverished young English aristocrat in the service of Bonnie Prince Charlie, sees this struggle as an opportunity to find wealth and power in the New World and arrives with the first settlers of Halifax.

With determination and fortitude, Sudden becomes one of the richest and most ruthless traders in the colonies, but his fate and fortunes are linked with John Foy, a rich gentleman on mysterious business in Halifax, and his beautiful wife, Mary. Trading with both the English and the French, Roger’s fate takes a bitter twist as he becomes embroiled in the bitter conflict between Halifax and Louisbourg for control of the northern continent.

Roger Sudden, first published in 1944, is a superb combination of history, adventure and emotional conflict. Available now in a new Nimbus Classics edition.
