The English Slave

Written by David Eugene Andrews


THE ENGLISH SLAVE An Epic Story of Love and War, Rebellion and Power, Religion and Beauty In his historical novel The English Slave, author David Eugene Andrews solves a 400 year-old mystery—the true identity of the beautiful Turkish noblewoman who received Captain John Smith as a slave.


Based on Captain Smith’s personal memoirs, The English Slave tells how Smith—sorely wounded while fighting for the Holy Roman Empire in Eastern Europe—was sold into slavery at Axiopolis, an Ottoman border town on the lower Danube. The Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, Hasan the Fruiterer purchases Smith and sends him in chains to Stamboul to be delivered to Hasan’s bride-to-be, a young widow named Aisha, Sister of the Sultan, who is instructed to sell him for ransom.


Aisha quickly learns Capitano John Smith is no ordinary slave. Speaking to him in Italian, she recounts how her betrothed beat him on the battlefield. Captain John Smith vehemently protests: no one has ever defeated him in single combat. Beautiful Aisha faces a dilemma: if the Capitano’s words are true, then her fiancé lied to her. What will she do? Aisha must discover the truth about Captain John Smith and the man she is destined to marry. 


 Part of a multi-book series. To be released on July 31, 2017!
