Wyrd

Author: Sue Gough



"Don't grow up without it! A daring adventure for the Pepsi generation into the glorious past – and a topical thriller about the search for self." Dale Spender Two young archaeologists discover the mummified body of an ancient queen beneath a French priory. Who was Berengaria? In Kings Cross, Trace, a young punk girl, joins a streetie's march to Paradise that echoes a long-ago Crusade. A gem-encrusted book falls into the hands of three extraordinary women in a New Age haven. What is the secret recipe it contains? Wyrd is the blank rune which draws together the rich threads of this exciting novel; it holds the mystery of the unexpected. Wyrd has the knowledge of the past, the present and the future; it is a gateway to another time and place, which Berengaria and Trace must both explore. An epic chase across the centuries climaxes in a battle of time and the elements.

Another winner." Peg Goode, SLAV Bulletin (Victoria) "This is history without a spoonful of sugar, and boy! Is it sweet! A great read." Rippa Reading
