CWL: Ellens Tale by Alberta Ross

Title: Ellen's Tale
Author: Alberta Ross
Publisher: Eilios Books

Cover art:

The Sefuty Chronicles are set in a world post climate change, when catastrophic global wars over resources have decimated the world’s population.  The survivors are divided into those who live within the safety of the City walls, and those who exist behind the false security of landmines, intended to be removed after the wars but still remaining 50 years later. 

It is 2162 and two young researchers, Ris and Maia, are studying the effects that the meeting between Ellen, sheltered City girl, and Bix, a genetically changed soldier, and their love for each other, had on history. The research is mainly concerned with 50 year old interviews recorded at the time. A second love story emerges through the incomplete correspondence between Ris and Maia.

Although the back history of the book is horrific, Ellen’s Tale is itself a hopeful and kindly book of two young people who, against all odds, fall in love and make a life for themselves.

About the Author:
I spent the first part of my adult life travelling the world, the middle years studying and gaining BSc Hons and an MA and now have settled down to write.  Over the years my interests have expanded, as has my book and music collection.  A short list would include reading (almost anything) science, opera, folk, gardening, philosophy, crazy patchwork, freeform crochet, ethics, social history, cooking (and eating of course)
