Patience Stout was born in Hillingdon and educated in Scotland and Colston's Girls' School in Bristol. On completion of her O levels, Patience's family moved to Raasay in the Inner Hebrides. Having discovered that helping out on the family farm on a remote island off the Scottish mainland was not ideal for a seventeen year-old, she joined the army. Patience married four years later into an army family and raised two daughters. When the girls were away at boarding school, Patience trained to be a nurse, stepping into midwifery and health visiting. Always interested in the Orient, Patience travelled to India, China and the Middle East. Retiring to Cyprus, she enjoyed studying Indian history and the East India Company. Combining her experience of the Hebrides with her love of India and the 'John company', she wrote this historical novel.
