Inspired by true events, Far Away Bird delves into the complex mind of Byzantine Empress Theodora. This intimate account deftly follows her rise from actress-prostitute in Constantinople’s red-light district to the throne of the Byzantine Empire. Her salacious past has left historians blushing and uncomfortable. Tales of her shamelessness have survived for centuries, and yet her accomplishments as an empress are unparalleled. Theodora goes on to influence sweeping reforms that result in some of the first ever Western laws granting women freedom and protection. More than a millennium before the women’s rights movement, Theodora, alone, took on the world’s greatest superpower and succeeded. Far Away Bird goes where history classrooms fear to tread, in hopes that Theodora can finally take her seat among the greatest women in history.Follow young Theodora through the scintillating and violent world of Byzantium. From the brothels to the bathhouses to the spectacular chariot races in the Hippodrome - her role in society seemed hopeless. But when she’s trained as a political spy, the lessons on personal power transform Theodora into the stuff of empresses. She seems impossible - yet her transcendence teaches us that society can’t tell us who we are deep down. Before there was a legendary empress, there was a conflicted young woman from the lower classes.And her name was Theodora. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Sarah.

1960s Scotland. When young Finn O'Malley travels from Ireland to work at the potato harvest, he forms a close friendship with Kirsty Galbreath, the farmer's red-headed grand-daughter. But Finn is damaged by a childhood so traumatic that he can recover his memories only slowly. What happened at the brutal Industrial School to which he was committed while still a little boy? For the sake of his sanity, Finn must try to find out why he was taken into care and what became of the mother he loved and lost. Time passes and the threads that have bound these two friends so closely together begin to unravel. Kirsty knows that only her ambitions as an artist can give her the fulfilment she seeks, but her work is tied up with her love for her magical island home, but also for Finn, who comes and goes like the corncrake, a mysterious summer visitor. Kirsty seems to be his sanctuary in a hostile world, but fate may have other ideas. Many years later, India, a successful folk musician, born and brought up on the island, tries to unravel the tragic love story that has coloured her whole life. But when Finn gives her a folio of Kirsty's drawings, she finds more than she bargained for. 'One of the sheets showed two figures, so closely intertwined that it was almost impossible to tell where one ended and another began, or to say which limb belonged to which person, and it was so full of a dark, heavy sensuality that India found herself blushing. In one sketch, a woman seemed to be stabbing her partner in the thigh with a dagger, or was she pulling the knife from the wound? Another had the suggestion of a great mass of roots and rocks in the foreground, with human bodies somehow emerging from the landscape or perhaps becoming a part of it: hands, torsos, legs, all with a sense of movement, struggle, striving to escape. Or was it a striving to be absorbed?' Dealing sensitively with the appalling realities of state-sanctioned physical abuse and its aftermath, Bird of Passage is a novel clearly inspired by Wuthering Heights or, as one reviewer points out, a dialogue with the older novel. It is, nevertheless, a standalone and powerful story of cruelty, loss and enduring love against all the odds. What reviewers have said: 'I was three-quarters of the way through this book ... before it dawned on me that it was Wuthering Heights in modern dress. I was tipped off by a couple of sly and amusing references to twigs tapping on windows and ghosts,and by the hero disappearing for years and then returning a rich man. It's not a re-telling, though - it's a re-imagining. A dialogue with the older book, if you like. It asks, would the same story, the same deathless love, be possible in the modern age, and if so, how? I was convinced, moved and impressed. Whether you love Wuthering Heights or not, if you enjoy an involving, beautifully written book, you'll enjoy Bird of Passage. Susan Price, Awfully Big Reviews 'There are no pat answers in this story and no neatly contrived solutions. Endings are jagged, situations remain unresolved. Yet at the end of the book there is a feeling of satisfaction that things did work out as they should - at least to some extent. I think that makes the story and its characters all the more realistic and credible. It's hard to pigeonhole this book to a specific genre. It's a love story, yet sometimes defies the label. It's contemporary, yet dwells quite a bit in the past. As to its audience - I think this would appeal to readers who don't need to be led by the hand and who enjoy challenging relationships. Wholeheartedly recommended.' Gilly Fraser, the Indie eBook Review. Catherine Czerkawska is an established and award winning author of novels, short stories and plays.
