For our meeting on October 10th we will be reading The Warrior’s princess by Barbara Erskine. The story for this book is as follows. Jess is a teacher in London. One day she is attacked by a person she feels knows her very well. After the attack Jess flees to her sister’s house in Wales to recuperate but there she is haunted by the cries of a mysterious child. Two thousand years before the valley below was the scene of a great battle between King Caractacus, the leader of the British tribes, and the invading Romans. The proud warrior is captured and taken a prisoner to Rome with his wife and daughter, the princess Eigon. Jean is inexorably drawn to investigate Eigon’s story and the Welsh house ceases to be a peaceful sanctuary. Compelled to complete Eigon’s story she travels to Rome, but in her quest she takes risks which put her, and those she loves in danger. If you would like to be a part of the group discussing this book on October 10th ask for a copy at the desk. New members are always welcome to join ou friendly group.
