The Silver Branch characters » 0 The fight against a tyrannical British emperor. It s very noticeable after reading a few of Rosemary Sutcliff s books in close succession how her protagonists are never the strong ones In Song For A Dark ueen it s narrated by the ueen s harper not one of her warriors or a member of her family or the ueen herself And within the context of the narrative that makes perfect sense but it s a slightly unexpected choice In The Eagle Of The Ninth the protagonist is lame in one leg because of an injury and therefore struggles with chronic pain despite the fact it is almost healed And here the protagonist is an anxious sickly surgeon he wasn t healthy enough to be a soldier with a stutter that gets worse when he s nervousIt makes a change It really does And it also makes sense reading the author bio of Sutcliff at the end of the novel which highlights the fact she was in a wheelchair for most of her life affected by Still s diseaseI ve spent most of my life hale and healthy until recently Unfortunately long term health issues got a lot worse and I ve been kind of limited in what I could do the last year or so I m also anxious and prone to panic attacks and nervous breakdowns A lot of the time these limitations massively affect my mood But they also impact my reading taste because why would I want to read about strong athletic characters saving the world their family when I could read about disabled or injured characters doing the same thing by overcoming their difficulties and playing their strengths I imagine it was a similar attitude that prompted Sutcliff to make those decisions about her characters and I m sincerely grateful for it It s refreshing to read a historical novel where the sickly or injured character isn t confined to their room while dashing young soldiers go around filling the plot criteria perhaps out of pity or love for their fallen comrade It s refreshing to read about somebody waking up with chronic pain in their leg and pushing through it to achieve something that most people thought was impossible or struggling to communicate because of their nervousness but working through it to build friendships and alliancesSometimes Sutcliff s style isn t the easiest and I always feel slightly lost for the first couple of chapters of her books as I try and adjust to the setting which is often very intense and a little bit difficult to understand and I m far older than the target audience of these books This one was no exception though that might have been because I haven t read anything in a few weeks due to a heavy workload from school and I wasn t in the swing of it But the story especially how it linked so cleverly and carefully with the earlier book The Eagle Of The Ninth made it worth it And I ve already mentioned what I like so much about her protagonists So not the easiest read I ve ever picked up from the children s shelves in the library and there s definitely no reason that it should be limited to that age group the writing and language is sophisticated the characters are young but grown up rather than being adolescents or children and I m sure it would appeal just as much to others my age 18 as to the ten year olds who freuent the children s sectionIn future I won t let myself be embarrassed when I check out those books
