In Britain, at Aquae Sulis, a place of pilgrimage and healing, hot waters gush ceaselessly from the earth. Since ancient times the waters have been associated with the supernatural. It is 72 AD -- most of Britain is under Roman domination. There is unrest in Aquae Sulis, and the centurion Decius Brutus, a Celt, is ordered to return to his home town to prevent trouble. But the local people, led by his proud father and his fiery daughter, Megan, are threatening rebellion... Cults from Rome, Greece, Egypt and Judaea vie with the native Celtic beliefs, forming a rich backdrop to the human dramas that unfold. The Waters of Sul is set at a time of transition and adjustment, when beliefs are questioned and loyalties tested. Love and hate, conflict and reconciliation, troubled romance and an uneasy traffic with the supernatural, all feature in this brilliantly conceived novel from a masterful storyteller. (96000 words)
