History needs people to create itself
People are leaves on the tree of Destiny

History for special occasions
In 400 BC Egypt, escaping priestess Meryt flees down the Nile with Kouros the captured Greek warrior.
They must not only
but deny a rising passion
- or they could lose everything, including their lives
Later they rescue two others on reaching the Mediterranean where they
SURVIVE THE WINE-DARK SEA
and its dangerous isles and coastal warriors
The small band must do whatever it can to
CROSS THE OLIVE-GREEN LAND
of warring Athens and Sparta, to try claim Kouros' lands before his father dies
Arrogant meets Elegant
In 1860 the world of innocent Mary Allora is turned upside down, literally,
LETTER FROM OSPREY,
where she sets sail from poverty
in Scotland, betrothed to a landowner she has never met,
to found his dynasty in Outback Australia
His brother, returned from the war,
is to escort her on the ship- to protect her virginity.
Mary prays she will find the landowner has the brother's same fine qualities
- and that Osprey estate is like her homeland
She will find neither are what she dreamed -
and her escort plans to leave Osprey for the goldfields of Victoria -
but can he abandon her now?
