author2author was delighted to work with bestselling children's author, Sheridan Winn on her superb new YA novel, Boudica's Daughters.
14-year old Lilla’s psychic power sets her apart from others. Often doubted, she is the clumsy younger sister to Janey’s swan.
In the sweltering July heat the Harrison family move to Grove End, an old farmhouse deep in Norfolk’s Breckland. Two thousand years ago the area was home to the Iceni tribe and their Warrior Queen, Boudica. Now, Nighthawks – illegal metal detectorists – are searching the woods for Iceni treasure. When Lilla sees the ghosts of Boudica’s daughters, she learns the trees hide an ancient mystery.
Janey’s arrival brings upset as she reveals her own dark secret. Overwhelmed by a sense of failure, she no longer knows who she is or what she wants. Shocked and struggling to cope, her parents try to help but are wrestling with their own feelings.
It is Lilla who must find the strength to help her sister. With Boudica’s daughters as her guides, her journey takes her into the ancient past and tests her sense of self-belief to the limit. Can Lilla save her sister and lay the Iceni bones to rest?
author2author was proud to work with Iona Jenkins' on her new book, Heartsong.
The Heartsong collection of poems and reflections is both mystical and sensory. Inspired by her connection to the natural world, events and sacred places, the author uses her impressions of light and colour to evoke and paint this magical blend of inner and outer landscapes in a flow of words.
