Description

A new century dawns, and Rome’s frontiers are again in turmoil. The year is A.D. 105. The emperor Trajan is calling in troops from around the empire to secure Dacia’s rich mines of iron, copper and gold. Britannia’s forts are left under strength and the north is once more in flames as the tribesmen sense weakness in Rome’s armies. The Ninth Legion, based at Eboracvm, must once more bear the brunt of the rebellion when, as the ageing Cethen Lamh-fada observed, “They’re having another damned go at it!” Now settled in Brigantia and living far longer than he ever wanted, Cethen finds his family once more straddling both sides of Rome’s ambition. As two of his sons guide the fate of Rome’s legions, two more try their utmost to hold them at bay. Set against the uprising of A.D. 105, when Rome abandoned most of the north leaving Agricola’s old forts in ruins, the story completes the saga of Cethen Lamh-fada and his people, and their unending struggle to remain free. As with The Village, and then The Fortress, the reader will find that Eboracvm: Carved in Stone is written with the same unique approach to the history of the times. There are no bold heroes, no vile villains, just ordinary people such as our selves who happen to live in far more difficult times. People who face life’s endless paradox of choices with a striking familiarity: the same fears and failings that haunt us today; a similar dark humour that makes tragedy bearable; and that lust for life and living that surpasses time…

    Some people are gifted with everything and do nothing. Deb has done so much with so many obstacles in her way. She is the definition of resilient. An inspiring read.

    I have known Deb for more than 30 years and she never ceased to inspire me. A talented writer, artist and photographer, and unrepentant animal lover, her story is stirring and motivating!

    Primal Power The Unripe Apple was given to me at my mother's memorial. I loved fantasy movies, but a book in that genre had never been my choice. Major changes were happening in my life and I needed an escape so I gave it a try. To my surprise I couldn't put it down! The book had mystery, magic, fear, love, friendship, joy, strength, courage, and I loved it! It seems laced with pearls of wisdom and I find myself rereading parts of it and always finding more insights. The characters within this book resonated with the strength within my own soul and have given me the courage to move forward, thank-you!

    I read the story with my 3 year old grand daughter and we both very much enjoyed it. Beautiful illustrations too. Review by Hannah (3 yrs)...."It was good. I liked the girl in the pink sweater."

    No one, especially a young child should have to deal with the consequences of an accidental gun shot. At nine years old, the author of this well written memoir was robbed of a youth, most of us take for granted.
    Hospitalized miles from family and their farm, she woke and was told because of a severed spinal cord she would never walk again.
    This is an inspiring story of determination and bravery, and how they shaped her as a person.
    How she never gave up on her dream to own horses, ride, and to live on a farm again. How her love and ability for training dogs enhanced her life with many special companions that also served a purpose.
    Reading this proves animals can make life worth living.
