A young Roman and his fellow soldiers are sent to Britain in AD 60.

Events focus on Queen Boudicca’s rebellion and a mysterious druid from Stone Henge.

The characters are vivid, though I feel Boudicca/Boadicea is too melodramatic.

The plot is a good adventure yarn, with action, mystery, suspense, a little romance, and a hint of druid-style magic.

That is as close as she can get to the man of her dreams. Yet, meeting the duke has sealed her fate. The saga that follows spans three generations of life and love. Seton does a fantastic job weaving true history with a fabricated backstory of romance. If you get the chance, listen to the audio version. It's fantastic.… (lisätietoja)

I had not heard of Katherine Swynford, but I had heard vaguely of John of Gaunt. This 14th century English novel tells the story of their relationship and their love. John of Gaunt was the Duke of Lancaster and the son of King Edward III and the father of King Henry IV, I did get lost in the names at times, but to remain historically accurate, the names couldn't be changed. I got lost in all the Philipas! This book felt like it was true to the spirit and lives of the time period, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and learning about someone I had not known before. (While I listened to the book on audio, I had a printed copy also.)… (lisätietoja)
