Winner of the Eric Hoffer Award for Fiction

Of all the woman warriors in myth and legend, few are more storied than Boudicca, the fierce, redheaded queen who, in the first century A.C.E. led the most celebrated Celtic rebellion in history. But here, for the first time, Jan Surasky imagines Boudicca’s enthralling story of bravery and triumph from the Celtic point of view. In her extensively researched, vividly told novel, Boudicca bursts to life as never before in all her bold passion, brazen courage and heroic glory.
