Publisher's Summary

This tale takes place in Iscium, an isolated Roman village in Britain. Most of the town senators and officials are primarily concerned with keeping a low profile with the neighboring barbarians - with the exception of the crotchety old bishop. But when young Falx decides to run away to Rome and instead finds a lost barbarian girl, things begin to happen. The children are found by a merchant who returns them to Iscium. This is a zany mix of history, humor, and the miraculous - in the tradition of Don Camillo.

    Story
    "Especially good for the whole family"
    Would you listen to Between the Forest and the Hills again? Why?

    Yes, we'd listen to it again. There are plenty of humorous parts that will be just as enjoyable in future "listenings."


    What did you like best about this story?

    Because I selected this audiobook to listen to on a drive with the whole family (mom, dad, children from 6-13), I was especially pleased at the number of references and witty remarks that were most enjoyable for the parents. My husband particularly enjoyed the interactions between the priest and the Roman leaders.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    John Lee did an excellent job at differentiating between the characters in their voices so conversations were easy to follow.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sorry - I'm not good with tag lines.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book of historical fiction for those interested in Roman Britain at the end of the Roman empire, but it's also just plain fun. There's military subterfuge, delicate negotiations, and lots of humor. Our whole family enjoyed listening to this book together on our road trip.
