The Daughter of the Fens

Elena Collins / Antonia Beamish
AD 61 Brittania is in the hands of the Romans but when the conquering army betray the dead King Prasutagus by defiling his daughters his Queen Boudicca is determined to regain her land. Iceni slave Brea remembers little of the time before the Romans and has grown used to their louche and indulgent customs. She diligently goes about her duties looking after the artless Aurelia wife-to-be of the handsome war hero Marcellus but her longing for freedom and her desire to find her lost father are never far from her mind. Present Day_x000D_When Hanna returns to Norfolk from years working abroad the strange dreams of her adolescence return: indistinct figures in tunics mighty soldiers in armour gladiators temples an Iceni warrior woman leading her people. Gradually Hanna's dreams begin to slip into the present as visions in the famous mists rolling across the fens and as shocks of recognition when a new face moves to her childhood home. As Hanna realises that she has a connection with a tragedy that occurred many years before so Brea has to understand that her fate is bound up with her Roman master. And as the drumbeat of rebellion gets ever closer Brea must make the fatal choice between love and loyalty while Hanna has to find a way to make peace with the past.
