For 13 years, Sorley has taught music alongside the man he loves, war and betrayal nearly forgotten. But behind their calm and ordered life, there are hidden truths. When a young girl's question demands an answer, does he break the most important oath he has ever sworn by lying – or tell the truth, risking the destruction of both his family and a fragile political alliance?

Empire's Reckoning asks if love – of country, of an individual, of family – can be enough to leave behind the expectations of history and culture, and to chart a way to peace.

After two careers as a research scientist and an educator, Marian decided it was time to do what she'd always really wanted, and be a writer.

As well as her novels, Marian has published short stories and poetry. Her life-long interest in Roman and post-Roman European history provided the inspiration for her books, while other interests in landscape archaeology and birding provide the background.
