Description

"That morning had come like any other fair dawn in the cool of spring: crisp and sparkling and fresh with the air of change." Rumours of war are buzzing around her, yet the young healer who wrote those words could not have imagined the catastrophic changes that were coming that day. Before the morning is over, her home is in flames, her family is dead and she is taken captive by the Scottish army that invaded northern England in 1138. This is her remarkable story of loss, survival and love. Eventually, the young woman writes of her experience, so it is her own voice that is heard in the novel Galiene, which uses as its title the name given to the proud and spirited young Englishwoman by the Scottish warriors. To King Fergus of Galloway, however, she is Amadan De, a Gaelic name meaning "Butterfly" or "God's Fool." Kind and passionate but tormented by deeds both past and present, Fergus seems to see in her far more than beauty and courage. His instincts prove true: the feisty and talented healer quickly becomes the spark that not only reignites ancient animosities among factions of the Scottish army, but also rekindles his own fiery spirit.show more

About Dawn Hammill

Dawn wrote her first poem on a boat trip to Saltspring Island when she was seven. Since then her pen has rarely been still. As a student and teacher of medieval literature and history in both Britain and Canada, she has won awards for her academic writing, but she loves writing fiction best, and reading it as well. She spends every minute she can afford exploring the settings that appear in her books, and when the weather is kind, she's out in her garden enjoying the sunshine and trying to harvest her vegetables before the ravenous wild beasties - moose, rabbits and slugs for the most part - devour more than their fair share.show more
