SMALLWOOD, Bill. Abuse of Power 2 : The Colonials and the Acadians. Ottawa : Borealis Press, 2004. First Edition. Pp (6),1-425,(1). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. An historical novel by Nova Scotia author Bill Smallwood. "Book one of this series, 'Abuse of Power: The Acadians', dealt with the struggles of the British forces to establish Imperial authority over the peoples of the Maritimes, including French civilians and military, Acadians, Indians, settlers, and some malcontents in its own ranks, in the period 1749-1757. Lieutenant William Gray of the Royal Navy does his best to perform his duties as an officer of the crown but at the end must defend with cannon his new home against Indians. This book, 'Abuse of Power 2: The Colonials and the Acadians' focuses on the British capture during the Seven Years War (1756-1763), of Louisbourg and Quebec. We are introduced to General James Wolfe as a new main character, with William Gray still an active participantin the battle scenes -- despite at one point facing execution by order of a Royal Navy Captain. Also present are most of the characters from Book One, so that the reader follows their adventures again in this extended narrative as they struggle for independence in their own lives." - from the rear cover.
