Spirited kids save a small part of their world, December 25, 2008 By Edith Parzefall http://www.edith-parzefall.de
The Battle for Boodicuttup Creek is the story of two young teenage boys and a girl fighting against the damming of a creek which serves as a wildlife habitat. They are up against the power of money, the force of the bullies and the slow grinding mills of administration. But they are not easily discouraged. They create awareness in the community collecting signatures for a petition, but won't be able to stop the men in time. They have to act quickly before the waterbirds' home is destroyed for good. So they set out at night and call on the spirit of the Great Goanna to help them. The story shows that everyone is responsible for what's going on around them and everyone can make an impact for worse of better. Set in Australia the story offers an exotic world of fascinating wildlife but Boodicuttup Creek is really everywhere and it's our responsibility to protect it, whereever it still exists.

Faine is a Briton and the niece of a very important man. She is beautiful and sings and plays the lyre beautifully. She also writes songs. She is unusually well educated for a woman of her time and place.
Titus Antoninus is a Roman Tribune from a very important family. He is very handsome and diligent in his duties. He has a bright future ahead of him.
Faine and her cousin Marella are asked to entertain the local Romans by their uncle. This evening is more important than either one of them could guess. Soon their lives will change dramatically and lead them to places far away from home.
This is a sweeping story set in a very turbulent era. Faine is a gentle character who soon shows her strength. Titus is also very strong character. Theirs is not a cozy romantic romance of hearts and flowers but compelling all the same. The story is rich with vivid characters and full of drama and action. The author does a good job of describing both the Roman and Briton lifestyles of the time and leaves the reader in anticipation of the next installment at the end.

She cherished that purple rug. I'm so glad you brought it to her.

Interesting piece you wrote here Laurel. I never gave much thought about the Roman colors and the costly lives of all those shellfish. One can only hope they were used in soups and a part of the Roman diet as well.
Yours in the love of Christ,
