Title: Ellen's Tale
Author: Alberta Ross
Publisher: Eilio Books
ISBN: 978-1844-26726-2

Reviewed by Jo Linsdell

In Ellen's Tale, Alberta Ross gives us an historical romance set in the future. She alternates between two main love stories occurring in different time periods.

Ellen's Tale makes for almost scary reading as the descriptions of climate change, child soldiers, landmines and genetic engineering that lead to mass death, disasters and despair, ring all to true to current events seen in the news.

This book is not in the normal form of narrative with dialogue and descriptions, instead it takes the form of transcripts of statements, and letters exchanged between two researchers.

I really enjoyed this book, even though it uses a narrative technique that I usually find quite alienating. The world is fascinating, and the way each statement introduces a new detail, and builds upon the ones before it is very enjoyable. I also think the future history described in the book is all too possible...
