Summary

Sole survivor of a shipwreck as a baby, Beric is an outsider from the start. The village druid warns that he is cursed by the sea, and when death comes to the tribe, the fingers of blame point only in one direction. Cast out by the warriors, Beric must survive in the harsh roman world by himself, with death, danger and enemies always nearby . . .

Outcast Summary

Outcast by Rosemary Sutcliff

Rescued as a baby from a shipwrecked Roman galley, Beric is raised in a British tribe but is never fully accepted by them. When disaster and bad times come to the clan, they believe it is down to Beric - that he has brought bad luck and misfortune to them - and they cast him out. Left alone without family or friends, Beric is sold into slavery in Rome and then condemned to a life on the rowing-bench of a Roman galley. With danger and death all around him, Beric must free himself and try and build a new life.

What a splendid story it is, compulsive reading! * Junior Bookshelf *
