Canadian-born novelist Parker wrote widely on imperial themes; the opening up of North America (The Trail of the Sword, 1894) or Egypt (Donovan Pasha, 1902); and war (The Battle of the Strong, 1898). Unsurprisingly, Parker was a Conservative Imperialist MP (for Gravesend) for 18 years. This is one of his later, more uncommon novels. The novel is concerned with the revolutionary 1790s: the setting is Ireland and the eastern seaboard of America.
