Thorns

Thorns

Author(s): Frances Brand

Location(s): Bosnia and Herzegovina, Shropshire

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1990s

Passion and evil played out in Bosnia and rural England.

Hustled aboard a military aircraft out of the horrific Bosnian conflict, newsman James Lambert struggles to come to terms with the trauma of the Sarajevo siege and the death of his lover.

Haunted by memories he seeks refuge on a small farm in the glorious countryside of the Welsh Marches. He simply wants peace and a different, quieter life and time to write about the confusion and savagery of civil war.

Entranced by the unspoiled beauty of the border land straddling England and Wales he settles slowly into a community which seems to him a time warp of ideas and behaviour.

But the thread of darkness which began in the Balkans reappears when his act of kindness to a vulnerable girl and her young horse drags him into a family dispute.
