About this product
- DescriptionFrom out of the blue, Sue Henderson receives a mysterious letter from an old firm of London solicitors. This tells her to collect a Captain's trunk that hasn't seen daylight for over a century. Inside the trunk is an exquisite jade Buddha, a stack of dusty diaries and an intriguing letter from her distinct grandmother. The diaries unfold to form a book called 'Mandalay', which records the gripping events which lead to Burma falling under British Imperial rule. Within the yellowing pages, sumptuous palaces, elephants, Buddhist rituals and unbridled love combine to create a sparkling Ruby for the British Throne. But how does the ancient writer of the diaries kw so much about her distant descendant. And what was the true purpose of entombing the truck for over a century?
- Author BiographyProfessor Leonard is author of over two hundred wide ranging scientific papers, which include a technique now used to safeguard the ozone layer. Lifelong fascinations have been science, religion and the future. These interests were combined in a series of novels, now revised and re-printed, whose titles included The Nostradamus Inheritance, Omega and The Legacy of the Shroud. The novels were well received worldwide, and even found translation into Japanese and Hindu. Professor Leonard has appeared frequently on radio and television to discuss the boundaries between science and religion, and gave the Cardinal Newman Lecture at Oxford University in 1986. More recently he has published a collection of poems, entitled Pearls Along The Path.
