It is the end of the Seven Years' War, and in Cavite a group of rebellious shipyard workers plans to expel the Spaniards from the colony, unaware that another imperial force looms on the horizon. Set in the British occupation of Manila, 1762 is the story of dissent and failure, of seduction and betrayal, and in the heart of this maelstrom is the Spanish mestiza Catalina, well-read but doomed to serve an imperial master. Finding herself getting deeply involved in the revolution, she is forced to make a dangerous decision that changes the course of Philippine history. In 1762, Vin dela Serna Lopez weaves an epic that mixes fact with imagination, showing us how tragedies, big or small, echo across centuries.
