John Travers (pseud Eva Mary Bell née Hamilton)

Eva Mary Hamilton (1878-1959) was born in Canada but wrote several novels set in British India. She lived with her husband, Lt. Col. George Henry Bell, until his death in 1916 aged 47 y, while serving in the Army in India. She was particularly concerned for Indian soldiers held in German P.O.W. camps during World War II.

This novel is not listed in British libraries under the name Travers, but under the name Mrs Bell or Mrs G.H. Bell, which you would have to know to be able to find it. Only Cambridge University Library lists it under the name Travers.
