Wall Of Stone By Warminster Author Heather Robinson


Wall Of Stone, a Roman historical novel by Warminster author Heather Robinson*, is available via Amazon, as a paperback (£6.05) or as a Kindle edition (free to read!).

It is AD121 and Legate Maxinius's Twentieth Legion is becoming demoralised by the covert tactics of the Picts, rebel warriors coming down from the north of Britannia to incite trouble between the invading army and the local Brigante people. Fearing an uprising and with growing frustration at Rome's lack of support, the legate ignores orders from Emperor Hadrian to consolidate his position without advancing and decides, at the peril of his career, that his legion must act by flushing out the rebels, shattering the peace of the area in the process. Wall of Stone follows the fate and fortune of two legionaries from the Twentieth Legion which intertwine with those of a local Brigante family.

"A very well researched and beautifully written book."

"Wonderful descriptive elements of both characters and the era."

"Riveting right from the start. Well written and very expertly researched with a gripping story line."

238 pages.
ISBN: 978-1500464776
Publisher: Create Space.
First published 26th July 2014.
