Summary

It's tough being a peasant in Saxon Britain. The taxes are too high, there are bandits everywhere, and rabbit porridge for dinner every night. Even worse, now the local thane, Lord Ethelbert, is plotting to take King Offa's throne, and the villagers are caught in the crossfire.

Can clever young Marian keep the peace? More importantly, can she keep her head?

Join master storyteller Terry Deary for a trip back in time to Saxon times and an exciting adventure.
