The Cross of St. Mary's

Lame after a Viking raid, Ulf leaves Leystoke to learn a new trade. Working for the ironsmith Hunlaf in Hemingburh, he is busy doing work for his lord's new church. When Feirgil the Irishman is hired to make the great cross for the altar, life at the forge becomes tense - and what of the master ironsmith's young daughter, the quietly self-possessed Goldrun?

About Peter Alan Orchard

Peter writes fiction set in the ancient and medieval worlds, including an adventure from the Trojan War ('The Painter of Lemnos') and two set in fifth-century BC Athens - 'A Pig in the Roses' (a mystery) and 'The House on Athene Street' (a children's adventure).

The Ulf of Leystoke short stories (so far 'Starlight', 'The Cross of St. Mary's' and 'The Morning Gift') feature an Anglo-Saxon farmer turned ironsmith in ninth-century England.

'Voices from the Past' is a collection of short stories set in periods from Bronze Age Greece to medieval England.
