The Cellist\’s Friend a masterpiece by Robert J. Fanshawe

The Cellist\\\'s Friend a masterpiece by Robert J. Fanshawe
"Book Cover Designed by URLink Print and Media."
Set during World War One, The Cellist's Friend is the story of one man's battle to redeem his own cowardice while recovering from a near-fatal war wound. Ben has witnessed his cello player soldier friend shot for desertion. The soldier they nicknamed Cello Played his instrument while his firing squad sang the poem "Invictus" before they shot him. This seems a victory over death for Cello while showing Ben's cowardice at not revealing the truth of the incident that led to the flawed accusation.

Robert J. Fanshawe is a former British Royal Marine officer who has a lifelong interest in the poetry, plays and stories of men involved in war. The Cellist’s Friend is the first of a trilogy of novels set in and after World War One. With his experience and love of the art of war, it is suitable for Fanshawe’s masterpiece to showcase classic stories that relate to war, the life in the military and stories of survival, guilt and the injustice of war.

How does one truly overcome guilt? Or even our own cowardice? How do we find courage in dealing with the truth even if it means revealing a dreadful secret? Ben seems trapped in his own cowardice, a prisoner of his own conscience. He has an opportunity to meet Cello’s family to tell them how he died and how he failed to retrieve the instrument after Cello was shot – but he cannot reveal the whole truth. Redemption might turn elusive for Ben remembering the poem they sang together with the firing squad called Invictus: a word that brought Ben haunting flashbacks, a reminder of him forsaking his cello-playing friend.

While Ben is trying to recover from a near-fatal war wound and find solace in poetry, Pearl, the widow of the Jamaican soldier who rescued Ben when he was injured, arrives unexpectedly in London. Questions arise: will their love grow and foster despite racial prejudice? How will this lead Ben to finally recover and redeem his own cowardice to serve justice to Cello and to his family? A true work of art that lets his readers immerse in genres that cover love and the journey in finding one’s redemption believing that it can be found if only we seek the truth. The Cellist’s Friend is filled with passion and raging urge to touch every poet’s heart all wrapped in one stunning masterpiece.
