Wall Of Stone By Heather Robinson
In AD121 the Twentieth Legion of Rome stands at the northern frontier of Britannia. Forgotten, neglected and dour in spirit, they must still do their duty for an Empire whose meaning is becoming lost to them. As the lives of the local Teviot family intertwine with the legion, relationships of love and bitter anguish unfurl. Will the invading army push north? Will the disputing native tribes unite in an uprising? Can Marcus be with Jolinda? When peace is fragile, friendships count for everything…
Heather’s #FavFive Spot
What’s your favourite book cover by another author and why?
My favourite book cover is The Boar Stone by Jules Watson. An understated yet effective cover. The font, the boar and the bronze coloured edging all blend superbly to yell ‘Roman’ at me – my favourite period of history to read and write about
What is your favourite time to read?
My favourite time to read is the evening; I always read in the evening.
Do you have a favourite snack to nibble whilst reading?
I don’t have a favourite snack to nibble when I’m writing, but I do have a drip feed of coffee. I should put it in a camel pack really.
Who is your favourite book character that has stayed with you long after the book ended?
The moles of Duncton Wood by William Horwood have stayed with me since I read the series three decades ago! Boswell the moledom scribe is my absolute favourite.
What is your favourite book quote?
The opening line from Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell gives me my favourite book quote: “Every day is ordinary,” Father Willibald said, “until it isn’t.” That hits such a chord with me; you lope along innocently in life, then ‘bang’, something unexpected presents itself.
