"I've loved every one of Susanna's books! She has bedrock research and a butterfly's delicate touch with characters—sure recipe for historical fiction that sucks you in and won't let go!"— DIANA GABALDON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Outlander The invincible ninth Roman Legion marches from York to fight the Northern tribes, and then vanishes from the pages of history. When Verity Grey goes looking for them, she may find more than she bargained for. Archaeologist Verity Grey has been drawn to the dark legends of the Scottish Borderlands in search of the truth buried in a rocky field by the sea. Her eccentric boss has spent his whole life searching for the resting place of the lost Ninth Roman Legion and is convinced he's finally found it—not because of any scientific evidence, but because a local boy has "seen" a Roman soldier walking in the fields, a ghostly sentinel who guards the bodies of his long—dead comrades. Here on the windswept shores, Verity may find the answer to one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time. Or she may uncover secrets someone buried for a reason.

Peter Quinell was obsessively searching for the final resting place of the Ninth Legion, supposedly lost when sent north in the 2nd Century AD to deal with some rebellious Picts. The Ninth Legion lay here, thought Peter, because a local boy called Robbie saw and talked to the ghost of the Sentinel who stood guard over the bodies of his dead comrades. The worst of it was that Verity believed Peter, she believed Robbie, and she believed in the Sentinel. And when he stepped in to become her own protector, she believed in him even more.

Writing Modern Ireland

Writing Modern Ireland examines the complex literary manifestations of Ireland and Irishness from the turn of the twentieth century to very recently. Together with examinations of the nation, the collected essays consider Irish identities that may be sexual, racial, regional, gendered, disabled and able-bodied, traumatized and in the process of healing. Identity, like literary texts, is a constant process of making and remaking, revision and publication. This collection takes up the question of what it means to write modern Ireland, evoking the many resonances that name will carry: a mythic place, a land controlled from elsewhere, a nation hoped for and achieved, a nation denied and resisted, an island divided, an idea soaked in fantasies and dreams, a homeland abandoned in searches for brighter futures, a land of opportunity, a people who are many people, and a place defined by writers who both empower and challenge it. W. B. Yeats looms large, as he does in modern Irish writing, and in commemoration of his sesquicentennial year. Building on a themed issue of The South Carolina Review, the present volume is expanded and rededicated by Catherine E. Paul (Clemson University). It features critical essays by Ronald Schuchard on Yeats, Michael Sidnell on Beckett, Liam Harte on Sebastian Barry, Jefferson Holdridge on contemporary Irish poets, and Thomas Dillon Redshaw on the revival of the Cuala Press (illustrated), together with a host of significant scholarship and criticism by 14 additional international experts from the USA, UK, Belgium, France, and (of course) Ireland.

Set in prehistoric Siberia, a “psychologically acute and soaringly imaginative” novel by a New York Times–bestselling author (Publishers Weekly). In this novel by the author of Reindeer Moon, set in the Paleolithic age, Kori lives among his hunter-gatherer people, guilty with the knowledge that his unborn child is being carried by his shaman father’s new wife. Then, Kori impulsively seizes another woman, from a different tribe, after seeing her swimming in a pond—putting his group in danger. He calls the woman Muskrat, and her customs, beliefs, and language are utterly alien to him. And their relationship may bring either joy or bloodshed . . . From an author and anthropologist known for both her fiction and her nonfiction—including the bestsellers The Hidden Life of Dogs and The Tribe of Tiger—this is a compelling tale “likely to appeal to Clan of the Cave Bear fans” (Library Journal).

The works of British author D.H. Lawrence were often considered to be shocking because of their frank treatment of subjects such as sexuality and desire, and novels such as Sons and Lovers, Women in Love and Lady Chatterley's Lover were often censored or confiscated due to their graphic content. The Rainbow, another of Lawrence's best-known novels, certainly doesn't shy away from its depiction of human intimacy in all of its forms.

The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats includes all of the poems authorized by Yeats for inclusion in his standard canon. Breathtaking in range, it encompasses the entire arc of his career, from luminous reworkings of ancient Irish myths and legends to passionate meditations on the demands and rewards of youth and old age, from exquisite, ocasionally whimsical songs of love, nature, and art to somber and angry poems of life in a nation torn by war and uprising. In observing the development of rich and recurring images and themes over the course of his body of work, we can trace the quest of this century's greatest poet to unite intellect and artistry in a single magnificent vision. Revised and corrected, this edition includes Yeats's own notes on his poetry, complemented by explanatory notes from esteemed Yeats scholar Richard J. Finneran. The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats is the most comprehensive edition of one of the world's most beloved poets available.
