    The theme of the book was freedom of the Britons, in the face of Roman invasion and occupation of Britain I liked that the Roman invasion of Britain was presented from the British tribes points of view for a change I saw how they possibly would have interacted, got a feel for some of their culture and sympathized completely with them After many years, Caradoc asks Plautius the two have become friends How would you feel if this country Rome lay under the rule of the tribes who had taken The theme of the book was freedom of the Brito...

    What an amazing, amazing book Pauline Gedge manages to recreate a pre Roman England Albion that feels so alive and so real, which is a skill that few historical fiction writers have, particularly in a setting so far removed from us today The story she creates is fast moving, keeping me glued to the pages, but she still has a way of packing an emotional punch I was in tears by the last pages.I was expecting the story to befocused on Boudicca, based on the book cover, but I don t neces What an amazing, amazing book Pauline Gedge manages to recreate a pre Roman England Albion that feels so alive and so real, which is a skill that few historical fiction writers have, particularly in a setting so far removed from us today The story she creates is fast moving, k...
