Summary

A novel based on the intertwined lives of Margaret MacDonald & Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

War has broken out and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh is in self-imposed exile from his native Glasgow, painting wildflowers in watercolour in a sleepy Suffolk village.

As a man from 'foreign parts', however, he falls prey to the suspicions of apprehensive villagers, even finding himself accused of spying. With tensions running high, it is his wife Margaret who comes to the rescue by engineering their escape to Chelsea. There they find themselves in a burgeoning artistic scene where old friends encourage them to seek out a completely new life in a rather different part of the world.

Will this be the turning point? Can Margaret's continuing love and support be just the leverage Charles needs to reinvent himself as an artist?

Enslaved and abused, Stuart and his friends join the mutiny of the entire Pennsylvania Line against its officers, holding their superiors accountable to the principles promised by their developing nation. In The Proud and the Free, Fast brilliantly imagines a forgotten moment in American history that marked one of the nation’s earliest struggles for freedom against tyranny. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
