A Coin for the Ferryman by Rosemary Rowe
Rate this book
Clear rating
So this is the last book of the Libertus series that I've been able to get my hands on in Singapore. Sigh, I really wish they had all the books, because I want to continue reading - it's definitely been getting more and more original.

A Coin for the F...more

The 7th and second last book on this series that I've been able to get my hands on. That took much less time than expected - this books get finished very fast.

Book 6 of the Libertus series, and it threw me for another surprise! I really think that Rosemary Rowe got more confident after book 4 and started taking more risks. Book 5 and Book 6 have been more original in terms of the mystery and the situations...more

The Legatus Mystery by Rosemary Rowe

We're at Book 5 of the Legatus series, and oh my, it's totally different from the first four books! For one thing, there isn't a body - at least not at first.

When the Emperor sends a Roman Ambassador to Glevum, everyone is thrown into a tizzy getting...more

Murder in the Forum by Rosemary Rowe
Rate this book
Clear rating
This may be the third book in the series, but it was the fourth (or was it fifth?) book that I read. So really, order isn't that big a deal, unless you're deeply, deeply interested in the relationships.

By that I mean Libertus and his long lost wife,...more

The fourth book in the Libertus series, this follows the whole 'Libertus is unwillingly dragged into a mystery again'. After the third book, where he caught a glimpse of his lost wife, he's especially unwilling to investigate.

But, Libertus is accompa...more

A Pattern of Blood by Rosemary Rowe

Clear rating
A Pattern of Blood is the 2nd book in the Libertus Series. As I mentioned before, I'll be starting with this book because of nostalgia.

A Pattern of Blood follows Libertus as he's sent to investigate an attack on a decurion named Quintus Ulpius (which...more

If my life were a book, I would have masking tape holding my hinges together. My pages would be loose, my edges tattered and my boards exposed, the front flyleaf torn and the leather mottled and moth-eaten. I'd have to take myself apart and put myself back together, as any good book restoration expert would do.Kate Carlisle

Dwight Longenecker
“Because we are limited in our knowledge, even the sanest of us are slightly insane. Our limitations are a kind of madness, and we can only choose to deny we are mad, and so descend into a dark spiral of total insanity, or accept we are mad and embark on a quest to regain our true and wholesome sanity”
Dwight Longenecker, The Romance of Religion: Fighting for Goodness, Truth, and Beauty

G.K. Chesterton
“In other words, we may, by fixing our attention almost fiercely on the facts actually before us, force them to turn into adventures; force them to give up their meaning and fulfill their mysterious purpose.”
G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton
“We do wrong to seek peace in Nature; we should rather seek the nobler sort of war; and see all the trees as green banners.”
G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton
“They preferred writing about great men to writing about great hills; but they sat on the great hills to write it. They gave out much less about Nature, but they drank in, perhaps, much more. They painted the white robes of their holy virgins with the blinding snow, at which they had stared all day. They blazoned the shields of their paladins with the purple and gold of many heraldic sunsets. The greenness of a thousand green leaves clustered into the live green figure of Robin Hood. The blueness of a score of forgotten skies became the blue robes of the Virgin. The inspiration went in like sunbeams and came out like Apollo.”
G.K. Chesterton

Dwight Longenecker
“Like Achilles, the hero who forgot his heel, or like Icarus who, flying close to the sun, forgot that his wings were made of wax, we should be wary when triumphant ideas seem unassailable, for then there is all the more reason to predict their downfall.”
Dwight Longenecker, The Romance of Religion: Fighting for Goodness, Truth, and Beauty

Prompt: .“Science never solves a problem without creating ten more” (George Bernard Shaw) (Literature & Fiction)

Description: What happens if we try to solve the problem of global warming by building an underwater utopia? Would using science to do so solve our problems or just create new ones?
