Crossroads at Isca

Published by You Write On.

Buy from www.amazon.com

 

The story of two British girls in the time of the Roman conquest of Britain. 

The Romans haven’t quite conquered Britain. Hadrian’s Wall is built in the north to keep the barbarians out. The Romans have made war on the Druids and unruly tribes in the south.  

Within the civilization the Romans brought with them, women are still subservient.   

Two British girls aspire to find their way among the obstacles thrown in their way.  

Poet and musician, Faine, was attracted to the young Roman tribune, Titus Antoninus.  

All Marella her cousin wanted was to dance. She was determined to use Tribune Lucius Acilius to further her ambitions. 

But first Faine and Marella have to overcome the plans of their uncle, Ceomin, chieftain of a British hillfort, who plots to use his nieces for his own ambitions.

Danyari is in Australia. A very large rock formation held in revere by the Aborigines. It also serves as a setting for an excellent book entitled Wind from Danyari which has been around for a little while but hasn't been heard about.
Read the rest of this review from Manic Readers on the Wind from Danyari page.

$10 posted in Australia. See 'contact me'.

The Ink Drinkers is a hundred pages of poetry and short stories by Laurel Lamperd and Sue Clennell.
Laurel Lamperd's story 'The Wolf and the Riding Hoods' is a parable coached in folkloric style. Its simple style is engaging, reminiscent of stories heard in childhood, and just as laden with meaning.
Sue Clennell's "When Rabbits were Sixpence' is a breathless vignette that encapsulates - like a black and white movie that reels faster than life - the workaday misery of pre-Depression days. Rosanne Dingli.
