Press Reviews

Far From Home is the final instalment in the Roman Pony trilogy by top author K. M. Peyton. Set in Roman Britain, the story concludes as Minna follows Theo, the courageous commander, as the Roman Army marches on marauding natives. When Theo is wounded in battle and Minna's beloved horse Silva is stolen by the enemy, she sets off alone on a life - or death - mission to save her horse. Don't miss the previous two books - the set makes a fabulous read with a unique background of Britain centuries ago.
