The Sugar Revolution

By Lyle Garford

Historical fiction, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


In 1787, when a family of rich, young French nobles are inspired by the Marquis de Lafayette to serve the cause of liberty, they travel to St. Lucia to promote freedom from slavery throughout the Caribbean. The head of the family, Anton de Bellecourt, is willing to try diplomacy, but he believes it will take more than talk to achieve success. In secret, he is soon distributing weapons to runaway slaves on both British and French islands, using fear of a slave revolution to force plantation owners to change. With plantations burning and owners murdered in their beds, Commander Evan Ross and Lieutenant James Wilton are tasked with discovering who is behind the violence. But French and American spies are prowling Caribbean waters, and more is at stake than Commander Ross knows. With the beautiful former slave, Alice, the two officers are soon in the midst of a tangled web of conflict, as cannons blaze amid bloody struggles for freedom. "The Sugar Revolution" is the second novel in the Evan Ross series.

After graduating from university in 1981, I met my future spouse and moved to Vancouver, Canada. I worked as a manager for over 30 years, but life now is all about the writing. When I'm not doing that, I play racquetball and hang out with my buddy Shadow the kitty when his owners are away. My latest project is a departure into new territory. I was fascinated as a kid by the exotic sugar islands of the Caribbean, so it's no surprise my historical fiction novel "Dockyard Dog" will take you there. The age of sail from the American Revolutionary War through to Waterloo in 1815 grabbed my attention when I got older and I've combined these interests with The Evan Ross Series. As for "The Stick Bug Stories" I kept hearing news items in the media of people abandoning their pets. Trying one day to fathom how that could happen, I began wondering what happens to pets people abandon in the forest and the first two books were the result. Watch for Stick Bugs In School coming soon.
