Synopsis

Far From Home by K. M. Peyton

Passion, courage and determination burn brightly in Roman servant-girl Minna's final heart-rending adventure.When Minna's true love Theo sets off north to battle, commanding an army that includes her brother, her friends and her beloved horse, Silva, Minna cannot bear to see them all leave her. Regardless of the dangers she will be facing, she joins the baggage train and becomes a Roman spy. Army life is hard and brutal, yet her growing closeness with Theo makes it bearable. Could he finally admit his love for her? But when Theo is wounded in battle and Silva is stolen by the enemy, Minna must throw off all her romantic dreams and set off alone on a life-or-death mission to save her horse. Set in a beautifully atmospheric Roman world, this classic story will enchant girls who dream of action, adventure and romance.
