Coventina's Well Maureen Thorpe

The third Annie & Rosamund Mystery...

A spellbinding journey through time and cultures…

In Coventina’s Well, three women, each from a different century, find themselves on a hazardous journey from the Roman Fort of Eboracum (York) to Hadrian’s Wall on the roof of England. Annie Thornton, modern midwife and witch, joins her hereditary witchy Aunt Meg to aid the ailing young wife of the Fort Commander in 296 A.D.
Without explanation, Aunt Meg disappears. Annie becomes a fugitive from the Roman Army and seeks help from local natives and her old 15th-century adventurers, ex-soldiers Will and Jack. As the three women separately venture north, the complex relationship between the Celtic tribes and their Roman conquerors is exposed. Meanwhile, back in Eboracum, disaster awaits.Once again, vivid historical detail, combined with magic realism and human fallibilities takes the reader on a fascinating journey through time.
