Novel set mainly on CRETE past and present
The Silver Rings
Adventure, intrigue and self-discovery in 13th century Spain, as our heroes come of age; fighting bandits, falling in love and, perhaps most difficult of all, coping with their families. The long-awaited sequel to ‘Reconquista’ (long listed 2016 Children’s Book Award ).
Rebecca is love-lorn and persecuted; Miguel is now the head of the Delgado family; Ben, the reluctant hero, pines for the past and Atta is desperate to find his father, held hostage by bandeleros. Together with Nathan, the runaway with dangerous new friends, their story unfolds as King and Emir jostle for power in the mountains.
Nathan and Atta still wear their rings, but, in a cruel twist of fate, Juan’s lost ring re-emerges, carried by someone who threatens Rebecca’s future and her happiness. Meanwhile the bandits join forces with a new and dangerous ally. As an audacious plan to rescue Atta’s father is hatched, the friends are separated once again, each of them in great danger.
Can they survive and find their way to safety and each other?
