Sample of Xaghra’s Revenge

Xaghras-Revenge-MockUp-2
Xaghra’s Revenge excerpt from Chapter 23 used on talks Read to the Salon literary event in Malta April 2018 and at the Gozo Central Library 1551 – Stjepan was one of 5,000 people on the island of Gozo, near Malta, who were mass abducted by pirates and sold as slaves in Libya. His wife, Lidia, was taken with other women to a harem in Constantinople. Convinced his life couldn’t get worse, Stjepan sat on a warm stone outside a single-floor long hut.
