Synopsis

Boudica The Story of the Fearless Iceni Queen by Gaby Halberstam

Following the death of her husband, Boudica, queen of the Iceni tribe, is brutally attacked by the occupying Roman forces. Her home is pillaged, her daughters abused, and her land stolen from under her. Fearless, intelligent and determined, she manages to free her daughters and escape, returning with the might of an angry supporting army. With a story packed full of bloody battles, fierce fighting and brutal military tactics, Boudica is an iconic figure of war and womanhood, whose legendary life story still resonates today.

About the Author

Born and raised in the sleepy town of Port Elizabeth in South Africa, Gaby Halberstam's passion for writing began at the age of five when she started penning stories for her family and friends. After studying English as an adult, she went on to become a qualified lawyer, a career choice she immediately regretted knowing that she'd be much happier as a professional writer. Now based in London with her husband and three children, Gaby has achieved her childhood dream and is a full time author. Boudica is her first publication for A & C Black.
