Lynne Ellison’s favourite book is The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff

In April Christopher Posner posted at the ‘You Write’ page (see tab above) that I might like to add to the ‘Rosemary Sutcliff influenced and inspired’ list the English author Lynne Ellison, who wrote the novel The Green Bronze Mirror, about a teenage girl who goes back in time to ancient Rome, at the age of 14. So I do, belatedly! He alerted me that Lynne is still alive and living in Sheffield (UK). Her account of how she came to write this book, as well as an extract from it are available here.
