              Felix and Livia are two runaways who are being pursued across the Roman empire, from the darkest, dampest corner of Gaul to the dry, desert sands of Tadmor. They must reach Rome by the Ides of April to rescue Livia's brother before he is sent into the arena to do battle with lion...s - and perhaps a vicious ostrich or two! Along the way, the pair are helped (and hindered) by a selfish sacred chicken, a foolish camel and a grumpy magic carpet as they encounter bandits, a shipwreck and a false accusation. Will they save Livia's brother in time, or will they all fall victim to the chicken's curse?

              The new historical saga from multi-award-winning author Frances Watts. A story of art, love and friendship, and finding your own path ...Kasumi, the daughter of an inn owner in a mountain valley, is brought to Edo as a lady-in-waiting for the wife of Lord Shimizu, a high-ranking ...samurai from a domain allied with the Shogun. While torn to be leaving the forest and valley she loves, it is also something of a relief: an unconventional girl, she chafes against the likely future laid out for her. She hopes that Edo will offer the opportunity of a different kind of life, different opportunities. And it does: as she is instructed in the accomplishments of a samurai lady alongside her mistress, she discovers she is a gifted artist - though it is impossible that a common girl from the mountains could possibly have any future in the arts, any more than there could be a future for her and Isamu, Lord Shimizu's nephew. But the concerns of the household outweigh Kasumi's own concerns. There are mysteries in Lord Shimizu's home; he and his wife Misaki have a dangerous secret, and Kasumi is gradually drawn into it. And as the tension simmering in the city due to the arrival of the foreigners increases, the effects are felt all too close to home ...Ages 12+
