When a man abandons everything he holds dear, he must have reason strong enough to bear his guilt. Andod accepts the blame – but when slowly revealed secrets uncover other truths, if he is to rebuild his life to honour without destroying everythingMoreWhen a man abandons everything he holds dear, he must have reason strong enough to bear his guilt. Andod accepts the blame – but when slowly revealed secrets uncover other truths, if he is to rebuild his life to honour without destroying everything he cherishes, he must counteract with guile.Sickened by the blood feuding and obligations thrust on Andod, the legendary White Raven, chieftain of his tribe in Gaul, he is leaving. Brought there and trained by Greeks, he will first take his son to expose him to life in the wider world before deciding his own future.By tribal law, in a year and a day, Andod’s wife, Gerwerith would be released from him if he did not return. And it was to Steo, his loyal friend and Druid advisor who had planned his leaving she would turn.Leaving his tribe, his wife, family and high status to seek a better life, it was entanglement in divergent cultures and their rites that he learns more of himself, the world – and of women.
