In August 1916, 75 intrepid women set out from Liverpool for the Russian Front. They were a unit of the Scottish Women's Hospital, led by Dr Elsie Inglis. They would form two front-line medical... More > units, attached to the Serbian army. This diarist, Ysabel Birkbeck, was one of the ambulance drivers, and she recounts their work and fun with honesty and humour: the long journey by ship, train and barge to Medjidea, the work of moving injured men across trackless country, excursions on horseback, including a trip to the front lines, and the first chaotic retreat across the Danube.

They went on to Odessa, where they worked on their cars, and Birkbeck was sent by train to Reni with supplies. As the roads iced over, the few remaining drivers were granted leave, only to find themselves returning via the Russian Revolution in Petrograd, March 1917.< Less

An accidental universe, where Existence was conceived in chaos, abandoned by its Inventor out of fear, greets its final breath. A plea for redemption, the Inventor calls out to the cosmos for a... More > second chance at Life. Thus, exhaled as it was in the beginning, his voice, the Original Breath, sails between the fraying strands of space and time gathering souls and memories in search of one who may bring Rebirth.

When all she knows goes missing, in a desperate search to find her family, Artemis must flee her home, embarking on an odyssey that will open her eyes to the horrors of her world. As she faces off against those that mean her harm, she will come to know the brutality of man, and she will question the worth of Life.< Less
