Series #3

Bill Page has a wonderful knowledge of late Roman Britain, which he uses in abundance for One Summer In Arcadia.

The plot centres around a three-way relationship between Canio, a retired Roman infantry officer; Trifosa his beautiful young consort slave, and Antoninus a retired Cavalry officer, the son and heir of Trifosa’s original cruwl master, Censorinus. Canio has acquired a fortune, the details of which are given in the previous novel, The Sower of the Seeds of Dreams, but he is being blackmailed into spying on Antoninus by Lunaris, an imperial tax official and Lunaris has a grudge to settle.

Skillfully interwoven with the action is a search by all the main characters for security in life, love and conviction, with all of it tempered by Canio’s worldly but liberal incredulity.

There are subtle plot twists and unexpected events, about all of which I shall say not a word ... except read this book and enjoy the adventure.

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear soon, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum. My apologies if you leave a comment and I do not respond - blame it on Blogger Bloopers. If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post it for you. Sometimes a post will appear as anonymous instead of your name or avatar - I draw attention to this being another Blogger Blooper and NOT of MY doing... That said ...SPAMMERS or distasteful rudeness will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
