Rest Not These Dead

‘Rest Not These Dead’, this final part of the Cellist Soldier trilogy, lays bare terrible guilt over the injustice of war, overlaid by a new era of love. The end of World War One brings no peace for Ben and his Jamaican lover Pearl in post-war London. A horrific racial attack sends her, grief-stricken, back to Jamaica. Ben is desperate to win Pearl back and, nursing a deeper guilt over his failure to prevent the unjustified execution of his cello-playing soldier friend, takes up the horrific job of body exhumation. But will a dramatic collaboration with a journalist in Arras, France, bring Ben and Pearl back together and reconcile the injustice done to his friend?
