Author: Wendy Leighton-Porter
Year Published: 2012
Publisher: Mauve Square Publishing
Recommended Age: 8+
“Wendy has produced a cracker in this, the third of the ‘Shadows from the Past’ series. Forget the Oddyssey [sic] and the Iliad – this is much more fun. Wendy places her delightful charcaters in the horns of yet another historical dilemma; but how will they save the day? Well worth a read!..” ~ 5-Star review from John C., Amazon US
“This novel in the Shadows of the Past series is a real favourite of my daughter (and I have to say myself as well!) We have read the other wonderful stories in this series and this installment is simply brilliant. I really feel like the author has come into her own in this story and established herself as a great writer of young people’s fiction … I really can’t speak more highly of this novel. Highly entertaining, educational and gripping! My daughter and I will continue to read these books together and eagerly await more!” ~ 5-Star review from A. Bradshaw, Amazon US
“In a masterly re-take of the tragic course of events that led to the fall of Troy, Wendy again demonstrates her detailed knowledge of the ancient world woven into a tale of action, mystery and friendship that should keep readers young and old turning the pages till they reach an alternative conclusion to a much loved legend…” ~ 5-Star review from Oliver E., Goodreads
About The Author, Wendy Leighton-Porter
Dividing my time between homes in England and South-West France, I live with my husband Simon and our two beautiful Tonkinese cats. I spent 20 years as a teacher of French, Latin and Classical studies, but now write books for children instead of teaching them.
The Shadow of the Trojan Horse is the third book in a series of 15 planned time-travel stories, featuring 3 children and, unsurprisingly, a rather special Tonkinese cat. Having recently completed number 6, The Shadow of Camelot (see FREE BOOK offer below), I’m currently working on the seventh book in the series, The Shadow of the Norman Arrow.
As I take my young readers on a magical mystery tour through the past, I’m also hoping that my love of history, myth and legend will rub off on them too. Personally, I’m enjoying the journey so much, I don’t ever want it to end! Why not come along with me for the ride?
