Annie Leonard (annieleonard) | 14 comments Looking for the title of a book about a slave woman who works as a weaver of the imperial purple robes and is raised up amidst some intrigue and adventure. I remember a lot about the source of the special purple dye, and her pride in her work

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) I wonder if its found in one of Alfred Duggan's books? Writer of historical fiction, often Late Roman or Crusades. Look him up on Wikipedia to see a quick summary of his plots.


Annie Leonard (annieleonard) | 14 comments No, I don't think it's Duggan. I'll keep searching.


Annie Leonard (annieleonard) | 14 comments I found it! Imperial Purple by Gillian Bradshaw.
