Six years later my family emigrated to England where my father, an ex-policeman, wanted to study for the Anglican ministry.

Pauline Gedge, The Eagle and the Raven

“Bint-Anath was approaching, her many-pleated, floor-length sheath floating scarlet around her, her slim shoulders visible under a billowing white flounced cloak, and the long black ringlets of her wig already glistening with melted wax...
