Free download The Silver Branch The Silver Branch Download ↠ 104 The fight against a tyrannical British emperor. It s very noticeable after reading a few of Rosemary Sutcliff s books in close succession how her protagonists are never the strong ones In Song For A Dark ueen it s narrated by the ueen s harper not one of her warriors or a member of her family or the ueen herself And within the context of the narrative that makes perfect sense but it s a slightly unexpected choice In The Eagle Of The Ninth the protagonist is lame in one leg because of an injury and therefore struggles with chronic pain despite the fact it is almost healed And here the protagonist is an anxious sickly surgeon he wasn t healthy enough to be a soldier with a stutter that gets worse when he s nervousIt makes a change It really does And it also makes sense reading the author bio of Sutcliff at the end of the novel which highlights the fact she was in a wheelchair for most of her life affected by Still s diseaseI ve spent most of my life hale and healthy until recently Unfortunately long term health issues got a lot worse and I ve been kind of limited in what I could do the last year or so I m also anxious and prone to panic attacks and nervous breakdowns A lot of the time these limitations massively affect my mood But they also impact my reading taste because why would I want to read about strong athletic characters saving the world their family when I could read about disabled or injured characters doing the same thing by overcoming their difficulties and playing their strengths I imagine it was a similar attitude that prompted Sutcliff to make those decisions about her characters and I m sincerely grateful for it It s refreshing to read a historical novel where the sickly or injured character isn t confined to their room while dashing young soldiers go around filling the plot criteria perhaps out of pity or love for their fallen comrade It s refreshing to read about somebody waking up with chronic pain in their leg and pushing through it to achieve something that most people thought was impossible or struggling to communicate because of their nervousness but working through it to build friendships and alliancesSometimes Sutcliff s style isn t the easiest and I always feel slightly lost for the first couple of chapters of her books as I try and adjust to the setting which is often very intense and a little bit difficult to understand and I m far older than the target audience of these books This one was no exception though that might have been because I haven t read anything in a few weeks due to a heavy workload from school and I wasn t in the swing of it But the story especially how it linked so cleverly and carefully with the earlier book The Eagle Of The Ninth made it worth it And I ve already mentioned what I like so much about her protagonists So not the easiest read I ve ever picked up from the children s shelves in the library and there s definitely no reason that it should be limited to that age group the writing and language is sophisticated the characters are young but grown up rather than being adolescents or children and I m sure it would appeal just as much to others my age 18 as to the ten year olds who freuent the children s sectionIn future I won t let myself be embarrassed when I check out those books

Free download The Silver Branch The Silver Branch Download ↠ 104 More than a century after The Eagle of the Nint. The Roman province of Britannia 292 ADJustin is an introverted awkward young military surgeon His family line Auila has been connected to Britannia for two hundred years but he has never set foot there till now A Celtic leader named Curoi called Carausius in Latin has declared himself emperor of Britannia and the northern part of Gaul he has gained temporary recognition from actual Emperor Maximian in honor of Carausius sea victories By now the Roman Empire has become a TetrarchyJustin is immediately befriended by a red headed soldier named Flavius who turns out to be his cousin Marcellus Flavius Auila direct descendant of Marcus from The Eagle of the Ninth Flavius is thrilled to meet a kinsman from the Continental branch of the family and both lads live at the ancestral homestead Marcus and Cottia built when they re not in the barracks One of those whom Justin heals in the infirmary is Evicatos an exiled Hibernian Irish warrior Cases like his demonstrate Justin s skills as a doctor and bring him and his inseparable cousin to the notice of Carausius himself But when Justin and Flavius witness an apparent act of treachery by Carausius minister of finance Allectus the world as they know it is upended It s up to these two their dignified great aunt Honoria Evicatos a Hibernian jester an idealistic Centurion a fussy little man and the boy he rescued from slavery a washed up former gladiator and a small group of elderly farmhands to restore order in BritanniaContent Advisory Violence The penultimate chapters are consumed by battle Sutcliff largely bypasses literal gore in favor of Justin s psychological state which is rather intense and harrowing After the battle we see two characters die one of whom was particularly lovable and heroic Two other characters both older men whom the heroes look up to are separately stabbed to death off page Justin is haunted by how he imagines these deaths with knives glinting in the torchlight A character who witnessed his adopted father figure die says that the man s enemies cut him down like a badger Sex Nothing And this is a novel about the ancient Romans Language Nothing Substance Abuse The characters generally opt for beer or wine rather than water because the drinking water supply back then was a sanitation nightmare Politics and Religion Anthoninus draws an ichthys on the hearth He looks at Justin and Flavius gets no reaction and wipes the symbol away again Nightmare Fuel Justin is severely claustrophobic and has a number of near panic attacks in small spacesConclusionsA solid look at a period of Roman and British history that I knew very little about This book is less adventurous and warlike than its predecessor The Eagle of the Ninth but its characters are just as lovable its familial relationships and friendships are just as strong its mysteries are just as alluring and its inner sense of moral integrity cannot be argued with I m super excited to continue this series
