about

It’s not well known that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle longed to kill off his greatest creation Sherlock Holmes, so that he could dedicate more time to historical novels. Micah Clarke was the first product of Doyle’s love for historical fiction. It was his second novel published two years after his well received A Study in Scarlet.

Micah Clarke begins in the year 1685. King Charles II has just died. There are two men who claim the throne: James II, a Catholic and Charles’ brother, and James Scott, a Protestant and Charles’ illegitimate son. Eventually, James II is decreed as the new king of England, but James Scott gathers an army of nearly 6000 to confront him. Micah Clarke is a commoner but becomes entangled in the rebellion. The novel follows Micah as he narrates the story to his grandchildren, a story of glory and defeat, joy and anguish, and war and a bloody peace.
