Synopsis

Eagle's Honour by Rosemary Sutcliff

Second-century Roman Britain is the setting for epic battle, high drama, bravery and romance in these two stories for young readers. A Circlet of Oak Leaves gradually reveals the mystery behind humble horse-breeder Araco's award for outstanding bravery, and Eagle's Egg follows the story of Quintus, a young standard-bearer, determined to be promoted so that he can marry the girl that he loves.

About the Author

Rosemary Sutcliff

Rosemary Sutcliff was born in Surrey, the daughter of a naval officer. At the age of two she contracted the progressively wasting Still's disease, and hence spent most of her life in a wheelchair. Although an avid reader, Rosemary made little progress with formal studies.

Many of her books are set in Roman Britain, a period which particularly interested her. The second in The Eagle of the Ninth trilogy, The Lantern Bearers, was awarded the 1959 Carnegie Medal.

In her lifetime, Rosemary Sutcliff was awarded the OBE and the CBE. Sadly, she died in 1992 at the age of 72.
