The Sterkarm handshake – Susan Price

FUP have built a time tube back to the 16th century. It is Andrea’s job to live with and report on the Sterkarms. The Sterkarms are a proud people who are fiercely loyal to their own clan, but savage and ruthless in dealing with their enemies. FUP offer the Sterkarms asprin and other trinkets for the right to exploit their natural resources. But when the Sterkarms feel betrayed a handshake means nothing and war erupts between the two centuries. Andrea, who is in love with Per, son of the Sterkarm chieftain, is caught between two loyalties and two worlds. This is a rich and absorbing tale of true love, treachery, greed and tragedy.
