This week saw the launch of the Dawn of Purple and Grey trilogy Facebook page and the response was overwhelming. I never expected it to trigger such a tsunami of encouragement and friendship. It also enabled me to reconnect with people I haven’t seen or spoken to in fifteen years or more!
I thought you might like to get a taste of the book. These are the opening words of Dawn of Purple and Grey:
No more would Ma fuss and scold and care. No more would she smile away a tear and stitch away a hurt.
Taking in a shuddering breath, her wide trousers and cloak dragging in the swish of the morning swell, Shael touched the side of the Zy’el boat. It drifted away from under her fingers, carrying Ma’s body towards Hylletha, land of the enemy.
As Ma had wished.
