How many secrets does your family have?

For 13 years, Sorley has taught music alongside the man he loves, war and betrayal nearly forgotten. But behind their calm and ordered life, there are hidden truths. When a young girl's question demands an answer, does he break the most important oath he has ever sworn by lying - or tell the truth, risking the destruction of both his family and a fragile political alliance?

Empire's Reckoning asks if love - of country, of an individual, of family - can be enough to leave behind the expectations of history and culture, and to chart a way to peace.

About the Author

Not content with two careers as a research scientist and an educator, Marian L Thorpe decided to go back to what she'd always wanted to do and be a writer. Describing her books as 'historical fiction of another world', Marian also has published short stories and poetry. Her life-long interest in Roman and post-Roman European history informs her novels, while her avocations of landscape archaeology and birding provide background to her settings. Marian lives in a small city in Canada with her husband and (currently) one cat.
