Swallow's Dance, Paperback / softback Book

Swallow's Dance Paperback / softback


I wonder if the first day of Learning is always like this - do the girls on the hill always feel the ground tremble under their feet?Leira is about to start her initiation as a priestess when her world is turned upside down.

A violent earthquake leaves her home - and her family - in pieces. And the goddess hasn't finished with the island yet. With her family, Leira flees across the sea to Crete, expecting sanctuary.

But a volcanic eruption throws the entire world into darkness.

After the resulting tsunami, society descends into chaos; the status and privilege of being noble-born reduced to nothing.

With her injured mother and elderly nurse, Leira has only the strength and resourcefulness within herself to find safety. A thrilling Bronze Age survival story from the acclaimed author of Dragonfly Song.
