There is a new novel out on Amazon/books titled Flags and Tears. The story is a historical fiction about England's first invasion of the mountainous Afghanistan. The saga historically follows the timeline of events. Many of the characters are based on those actually involved. The epic has never been told in novel form. The political intrigue in the overthrow of the Afghan Emir is one layer of the plot; along with a war time love story. A diverse cast of players, including world leaders, spies, a smuggler, a kidnapped wife, a priestess, beautiful women and soldiers, are woven into the cultural, religious tapestry of Afghanistan and India during England's 19th century rule. Marvel at how history repeats at different times and places.
