Colonel Quaritch, V.C.: A Tale of Country Life

H. Rider HAGGARD (1856 - 1925)

This is not your typical H. Rider Haggard adventure book yet it is full of mystery and intrigue including a coerced marriage, bigotry, adultery, murder and a buried treasure!

This is the tale of an ancient family’s struggles to survive, one woman’s selflessness and another’s evil schemes; Two Gentlemen, two scoundrels and one very underestimated, loyal servant.

Listen as the tale unfolds and guess where the treasure is hidden that can save them all! Summary by Esther.
