Imperial Rescript by Elwyn Nicol

indie ebook cover

In a pre-war English industrial town two young boys are thrown together by adoption.

Christopher's quiet and comfortable childhood is immediately disrupted by the arrival of his new brother, and he struggles to cope with the sudden changes and his feelings of rejection. Freddie - cheeky, popular and impetuous, - usurps his brother's position in the middle-class home and neighbourhood, and by 1939 is an acclaimed hero of Dunkirk, only then to be captured at Singapore.

But news of the death of his younger brother as a prisoner of war in Japan, and the impenetrable wall of secrecy that surrounds it, haunts Christopher, and confused and tormented he sets out to discover what turns out to be an unpalatable truth.

This intelligent and moving story of the Cooke brothers straddles the years before the start of World War Two to the Korean War and beyond.
