Part Two: Martine
Persons who have read A Dash Of Spice, and regular readers of Eternity Road, the Website I operate, will have seen several parts of this novel before, as independent stories. Some of those stories have been slightly altered for their employment here. I beg your indulgence; after having written so much, and for so long, about these women, it seemed right and necessary to give them the coherent narrative they deserve. Thus, I've created an episodic novel from those tales, and a handful of new ones, that unite them thematically.
