The Blackwater Saga

A Victorian Riverside Romance

Author: Ian Yearsley

Publisher: Paragon Publishing

ISBN: 1782222944

Category: Fiction

Page: 106

View: 5203

In late-19th-century coastal Essex physician-turned-novelist Dr. Richard Wilde is taking a holiday in the country to escape the pressures of London life. A fortuitous accident leads to him meeting a beautiful 18-year-old local girl, Bessie Cable, with whom he keenly pursues a platonic relationship as he sees in her the model for the heroine of his next novel. Bessie’s long-time love, the ignorant farmhand Tom Spiggins, does not, however, take kindly to the doctor’s interest in his girl. As jealousy takes hold of Tom and old passions reawaken some lost threads of his family history, the potential for conflict between Tom and the doctor begins to loom large.  Inspired by the Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould’s classic Essex marshland novel Mehalah, The Blackwater Saga is written in the traditional romantic style of Victorian novels. Its author, Ian Yearsley, draws heavily on his background as an Essex historian to set the action in the fictional village of Loriston, on the north shore of the River Blackwater between Maldon and Tollesbury, where the atmosphere and the story of a classic love triangle both come alive through the gentle geography of a rural riverside village.

ERIC BRIGHTEYES - A Viking Saga

Author: H. Rider Haggard

Publisher: Abela Publishing Ltd

ISBN: 1907256660

Category: Juvenile Fiction

Page: 436

View: 3114

ERIC Thorgrimursson (nicknamed 'Brighteyes' for his most notable trait), strives to win the hand of his beloved, Gudruda the Fair. Her father Asmund, a priest of the old Norse gods, opposes the match, thinking Eric a man without prospects. But deadlier by far are the intrigues of Swanhild, Gudruda's half-sister, a sorceress, who desires Eric for herself. She persuades the chieftain Ospakar Blacktooth to woo Gudrida, making the two men enemies. Battles, intrigues, and treachery follow. From the pen of the master of Victorian action and adventure this novel actually seems rather less dated in the early 21st century than Haggard's other work or the general run of Victorian adventure fiction. Improvements in our understanding of the Viking period have done surprisingly little to falsify Haggard's imagination of its setting, and the book should still hold appeal to any reader interested in the period. Clearly influenced by the pioneering saga translations by William Morris and Eirikr Magnusson in the late 1860s ERIC BRIGHTEYES set a standard of quality and fidelity to the saga style that remained unmatched until Poul Anderson's novel The Broken Sword 60 years later. 33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charity.

Victoria Jones kennt von Geburt an nur Waisenhäuser und Pflegefamilien. Wie ein Gegenstand wurde sie von einer Bleibe zur nächsten weitergereicht. Schon als Kind hat sie sich deshalb zu einer wortkargen, menschenscheuen Kratzbürste entwickelt. Einzig für Blumen interessiert sie sich, und für deren Sprache, denn die hat sie von Elizabeth gelernt, dem einzigen Menschen, von dem sie je Liebe erfahren hat. Mit achtzehn Jahren ist Victoria obdachlos und ganz auf sich allein gestellt – bis sie einen Job in einem kleinen Blumenladen findet. Auf dem Markt der Blumenhändler lernt sie schließlich einen jungen Mann kennen. Erstaunt stellt sie fest, dass Grant ebenfalls die Sprache der Blumen versteht. Gegen ihren Willen keimt in Victoria nach langer Zeit wieder Hoffnung: auf Liebe, auf eine Familie, auf ein Zuhause ... Doch ihre Vergangenheit, ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an Elizabeth holen sie immer wieder ein. Kann es Grant gelingen, sie trotzdem zu lieben – so unberechenbar, so verstockt, so verletzlich, wie sie ist?
