Beneath the Shadow of the Monster of Glamis

This novel uses the facts that I have discovered as a framework upon which to set out a story that will interest anyone who wishes to know how Benenden began. Of course I have embellished them. This is a novel. It is set within the years 1862 to 1910. Yes, there were people who started to deal with the victims of tuberculosis in the Post Office, the “white scourge” in 1890. One must be Charles Garland OBE of whom it has been said “Much is known of the chronology in Charles Garland’s crusade but little of the man”. In order to explain how Charles Garland was able to get Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Christian, as a supporter and with such a powerful ally eventually get Benenden Hospital built, I have had to delve into history and then exercise my imagination. Inevitably the explanation takes time, but I think, and indeed I hope, you will enjoy it.
