Description

It is AD 388, and the end of Roman rule in Britain is drawing near.

On the continent, the Empire is racked with strife. General Magnus Maximus set out from Britain five years past, taking the legions with him. He has now paid the penalty for his ambitions. That army can no longer return, for it is desperately needed by Rome to fight her own battles. Left to defend herself, Britain now relies on the remnants of the Roman field force: mobile auxiliary troops that rush from pillar to post, meeting every threat wherever it rises. South of Hadrian’s wall and threatened on three sides, Eboracum is the centre of operations in the north. Cadeyrn Aurelius and his wife Galena raise a private army to help fill the void left by Rome. Other such forces will follow, but as yet history has no barons, nor the kings to control them.

A new saga begins, one that follows the fortunes of Aurelius’s family; that of the dispirited soldier Duagal Arbitus, forced by circumstance to turn traitor; and an expanding Christian church, a rising influence that affects them all, and not always for the better.

As with the first Eboracum Trilogy, Eboracum, No Turning Back, is written with the same unique approach to conditions of the time. Historically accurate, there are no bold heroes and no vile villains, just ordinary people who happen to live in more difficult times. People who face their own unique litany of fears, failings and foibles as they meet each challenge head on (for the most part) with a pragmatic acceptance and dark humour that is strikingly familiar, even today.

    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.
