The gripping story of Boudica and her battle against the Roman empire, told through the eyes of a young girl. Perfect for fans of historical adventure.

Young Rhianna is relieved when Queen Boudica takes in her and her sister when their parents die. But there's a darkness in Boudica that's waiting to be unleashed and the Romans will suffer for their crimes against her. Soon, Rhianna witnesses much more than the kindness that Boudica has shown her and her sister. There's a battle coming... and a terrible aftermath.
This exciting and engaging take on a powerful woman from history from the master historical storyteller, Tony Bradman, is a great way to cover Boudica who is covered on the Key Stage 2 (KS2) curriculum in England.
Flashbacks offer dramatic stories set in key moments in history, perfect for introducing children to historical topics.
