The Wedding Shroud by Elisabeth Storrs now available worldwide

Following up on the review I did of the wonderful novel The Wedding Shroud by Elisabeth Storrs of Australia, I'm pleased to pass along her announcement that it is now an ebook available to readers in many countries.

When I reviewed The Wedding Shroud last December it was only available in the Australian market. Her carefully crafted, unique, and elegantly written novel about the arranged marriage of an ancient Roman woman and an Etruscan lord can definitely be enjoyed by lovers of historical fiction regardless of where they live.

This novel really made me contemplate the world of ancient people and how it differed from our modern world. The primitive elements and the superstitions interwoven with an advanced culture of music, cuisine, language, law, mathematics, and architecture were fascinating. The characters were complex, tormented, and I was never quite sure what anyone would do.

Look for The Wedding Shroud at Amazon, Amazon UK, and the iBookstore.
