Beskrivning

Richard Carvel is a historical novel by the American novelist Winston Churchill, presented interestingly in the form of memoirs of an eighteenth-century stubborn and quick-tempered young man, Richard Carvel. He grew up with his grandfather, a wealthy man from Maryland and faithful to King George. But Richard's sympathies are with the people of the colonies who are unhappy about England's behavior towards them. It is set partly in Maryland and partly in London, England, during the American revolutionary era.

First published in 1899 this eight-volume novel was a great hit immediately and sold around two million copies. Churchill used beautiful and easy-to-read language throughout. It's an entertaining novel filled with family feuds, romantic interests, abduction, pirates, the elevated lifestyle in London, and influential historical characters both British and American like the first president of the U.S.A, George Washington, and Whig politician Horace Walpole. The characters are lifelike; they have their fair share of flaws but show excellent character development till the end.
