"I’ve never read Colin Falconer before so I had no idea what to expect! Wow!" - Booknerd
“EVEN IF GOD FORSAKES YOU, I WILL FIND YOU.”
Amsterdam, 1628. Cornelia Noorstrandt is a fine lady and a beautiful one, traveling alone on an eight-month voyage to the other side of the world, on a tiny and overcrowded ship at a time when most navigation was done by dead reckoning – guesswork. What could possibly go wrong?
What she and the ship’s commander doesn’t know is that there is mutiny fomenting below decks even before the ‘Utrecht’ sets sail. They are all sailing into hell.
The ships’ rebellion is confounded by shipwreck, on god-forsaken islands near the Great Southland. As the fine gentlemen around her reveal themselves for what they really are, Cornelia’s only hope is a mercenary in a torn coat.
A STORY OF SURVIVAL LIKE NOT OTHER, THAT WILL KEEP YOU TURNING PAGES LONG INTO THE NIGHT.
This September, 2019 edition contains extensive editorial revisions
Colin Falconer is the internationally bestselling author of over a dozen novels of classic and twentieth century novels of historical fiction that have been translated into 23 languages.
Here's what reviewers are saying about EAST INDIA:
“It is hard to turn off your Kindle when Colin’s EAST INDIA is flashing on the screen. He weaves his magic with this exciting novel about one of the most horrendous shipwrecks in maritime history, with his gifts at characterization, dialogue and riveting storytelling evident on every page”. *****
“Wow! Another amazing piece of historical fiction by Colin Falconer. This book is based on the actual shipwreck of the Batavia. We see horror, murder, madness, survival and all sides of human behavior in those who are shipwrecked. There is a complete personality turnaround in some of the survivors of the shipwrecked. Finding water and surviving the elements is not their main concern but surviving each other is. Colin Falconer is a true storyteller and one of my all time favorite authors. ‘East India’ is an incredible story of survival that is well worth the read.” *****
