THE TRILOGY

 

Each of the following books can be read independently. However, following the main character through his adventures in a chronological order makes the understanding more complete. The books will be launched in June 2016.

Birth of a River

BOOK ONE OF THE ARMORAN TRILOGY

This is the story of two unlikely companions travelling from Brittany to Britain in search of a mystical river. Armoran, a child of twelve, has a special gift, he can listen to trees. Pursued and vulnerable, he turns to an old lighthouse keeper to help him carry out his mission. In a world turned increasingly disconnected and destructive, this allegory sets the stage for a contemporary rural renaissance. Birth of a River is a transforming novel about learning to listen to nature, the wisdom of innocence and self-discovery.
