Christian College Geelong Senior Library: Lovers of literature

Quintana of Charyn (Book Three of the Lumatere Chronicles) by Melina Marchetta

There’s a babe in my belly that whispers the valley, Froi. I follow the whispers and come to the road . . . 

From internationally best-selling and multi-award-winning author Melina Marchetta comes the unforgettable final book in the Lumatere Chronicles.

Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi must travel through Charyn to search for Quintana, the mother of Charyn’s unborn king, and protect her against those who will do anything to gain power. But what happens when loyalty to family and country conflict? When the forces marshalled in Charyn’s war gather and threaten to involve the whole of the land, including Lumatere, only Froi can set things right, with the help of those he loves.

‘A story of both the harm that people can inflict, and the healing . . . .It is about hope, but the hope that is earned by blood and tears, the hope that is willed into being because of a desire that life should be better than what it is . . . Lest this sound too emotional, too romantic, rest assured it is also action packed.’ School Library Journal
