Editorial Reviews

Review

  • Listening to the audio edition of Boudicca: Britain's Queen of the Iceni, I found I was immediately transported back to a time and a place where savage wars were constantly fought, and women were treated no better than slaves. Historian author Laurel A. Rockefeller made the right choice when she recruited British actor Richard Mann to narrate her audio version. His powerful, poignant voice pulled me in, swept me away, and gave me a front row seat into the turbulent life of Boudicca. Well done, Rockefeller and Mann! --Sharon Ledwith
  • "This book drew me into a history I knew little about yet found fascinating. I was enlightened and educated, swept away by the narrative and realism in this book. I found the historical aspect well blended with the emotional tone of the story. This is a book that offers a great deal in relatively few pages, it is concise and yet engaging. Well worth reading and then reading again !!!" --kimberly duboise
  • "This is such a great story. So full of life, inspiration, will, and courage. Honestly, I may have never come across it on my own. It is truly motivational. A true heroic story. I love this story, mainly because it shows that women are just as strong if not stronger than a man. This story allows the eyes of all to be opened to see that not only did men have a huge impact in history, but so did women. Plus, the ending of the book is truly beautiful!" --Kelly Renée

From the Author

Boudicca truly is one of the most legendary women of the western world. Demeaned and dismissed in Tacitus' Annals (from which this story is primarily based), she is the stuff of numerous historical novels, most of them being completely unsuitable for younger audiences.
As an amateur scientist and a long-time living history re-creator in the Society for Creative Anachronism, I took a different approach, focusing on scholarship made accessible to everyone -- no matter how young or old.
Upon the account by Tacitus (the speeches at the end are nearly identical in substance to Tacitus, though put in my own words and from a Celtic point of view),  I added the research from more than a dozen science and social science sources.  These appear in the bibliography at the end.  This too sets this novella apart from others you have seen and explored.
Told by a mother and daughter facing the Saxon invasions in the 5th century CE, this story will inspire you as you discover the Celtic world.
