Overview

In his debut historical novel, The English Slave, author David Eugene Andrews solves a 400-year-old mystery--the true identify of the beautiful Turkish noblewoman who received Captain John Smith as a slave. Based on 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, a border town on the lower Danube. Grand Vizier Yemisci Hasan Pasha purchases the well-dressed John Smith and sends him in chains to the Pasha's fiancee in Stamboul in order to procure him for a ransom. The Grand Vizier promises his betrothed, Aisha, Sister of the Sultan, that she can keep the slave ransom all for herself. The Turkish noblewoman brings the slave to her massive palace and speaking to her captive in Italian, Aisha quickly learns Capitano John Smith is no ordinary slave.
