Mary Ann Bernalabout this book: In the fourth book of the series, we concentrate on Concordia’s coming of age experiences. She was a child when the trilogy ends, which puts the timeline some sixteen years later. While the story begins in Britannia, a major part of the adventure takes place in Muslim Hispania. En route to Rome, her ship is attacked by Saracen pirates and Concordia finds herself enslaved by her Moorish captor. As time passes, the hope of rescue diminishes, which prompts Concordia to plan her escape.
I chose Concordia over Oriana, or Emidus or Gabriel because she was the most vocal and demanding. Her personality has been shaped by a traumatic early life - no spoilers - which might explain her behavior, but it does not excuse her conduct.
The modern reader will be able to relate to the willful Concordia, because each and every one of us has “been there, done that.” Maybe, by recognizing some of the traits, and seeing the consequences of a wrong decision, a modern reader might see the error of his/her ways, and be spared a painful life’s lesson.

a review by Elisabeth MarrionAnother great read by Mary Ann Bernal. I like how versatile Mary Ann can be, yes the same time frame but a totally different approach.Research must have taken a long, long time to write this book. I am surely becoming one of her greatest fans. I don't want to give away to much of the story but it has intrigue, love and yes the odd battle here and there. The main female character is ... well you have to read it
a review by Brenda PerlinMary Ann Bernal's Briton and the Dane - Concordia was my favorite which says a lot as I love all of her powerful books. This one just has an extra something. Maybe it is Concordia herself but the author told this story that made me not want to walk away. I fell in love with the romance and the storyline. This is a compelling story that will entertain you as you are taken to another place and time.
The writing is flawless that you feel like the scenes are happening all around you. Crisp and clean. It's so clear that it is easy to fall into the story from the very beginning.
All the twists and turns had me yearning to know where this would all lead. I couldn't get enough of Concordia!
