Overview

The Storyteller's Granddaughter by Margaret Redfern


'Child,' Nene said out of darkness, out of silence, 'I want you to go to your grandfather's country. I want you to find him.' When her beloved grandmother dies, Sophia is to be sent back to her father's tribe – which may be a death sentence. As the possessor of skills which no other girl has, Sophia determines to make her own fate and to fulfil her grandmother's wish. In the dark of night she creeps from the summer dwelling intent on finding her way to England in search of Will the Storyteller – the man Nene fell in love with years before, the man Nene sees in Sophia's eyes. Unbeknownst to her, the key to her success is a Welshman who would protect her with his life but doesn't even know her name...

Set in 1336, The Storyteller’s Granddaughter tells the tale of seventeen-year old Sophia, whose beloved herbalist grandmother had just died. Sophia is to be sent back to her father’s tribe, which is fraught with uncertainty and danger. To avoid this, Sophia sets off on her own long journey along the Spice Road all the way from Anatolia to England, in search of her grandfather, Will the Storyteller. Sophia must disguise herself as a boy to survive her action-packed, suspenseful journey with the handsome trader she believes might help her find her grandfather. The author cleverly draws the reader into this beautiful, fascinating and dangerous medieval world through a narrative pace that never lets up as Sophia faces one crisis after another: the elements, starvation, and evil, mercenary slavers. The girl finds she must use all of her skill and cunning as a horsewoman and a healer, to avoid capture and certain death. But the stories of the people with whom she travels: the heroes, the villains, the slavers and the singers, urge Sophia onward, eventually bringing her closer to a new home. For readers looking for a gripping medieval adventure that stunningly portrays 14th century Anatolia, I would recommend The Storyteller’s Granddaughter.
