More > normanna di Re Ruggero II d’Altavilla. Kallyna d’Àrgira, maestra del telaio la cui arte sa trasformare il mondo in filo di seta, è promessa in matrimonio dal padre a Raimo Trani, un uomo che lei detesta. Dopo che un’improvvisa tragedia la lascia in balìa di Raimo, la sua esistenza s’intreccia con quella di Dàlibor d’Hancourt, governatore normanno di Tropea, che come lei è oppresso da una vita non scelta. Le loro condizioni sociali—Kallyna figlia di pescatore, Dàlibor figlio di signore straniero—dapprima oppongono l’una contro l’altro. Quando il talento di Kallyna attrae l’attenzione sgradita dell’erede al trono di Ruggero, il quale può distruggerli entrambi, la minaccia comune li unirà in un amore che sfida ogni distinzione, sullo sfondo dell’epoca di ferro che vide nascere il più grande regno d’Italia.< Less

The Iron and the Loom By Flavia Idà
eBook (ePub): $4.99
The year is 1136, the place Tropèa, a walled sea town in Southern Italy during the Norman domination. Kallyna d’Àrgira, a master of the arts of the loom who can turn the world... More > into silk thread, is pledged in marriage by her father to Raimo Trani, a man she hates. After a sudden tragedy leaves her at Raimo’s mercy, into her life comes Dàlibor d’Hancourt, the Norman knight sent by King Roger of Hauteville to be the new governor of Tropèa, a man who, like her, is burdened by a life he did not choose. Their opposite stations — Kallyna the daughter of a fisherman, Dàlibor the son of a foreign lord — pit them at first against each other. When Kallyna’s talent attracts the unwelcome attention of the heir to Roger’s throne, who can destroy them both, the common threat will draw them together, with a bond that defies all distinctions, into the time of iron that saw the founding of the greatest kingdom in Italy.< Less
