Welcome!

“Find the path…and stay on it.”

It all began at Uffington, on a visit to Wayland’s Smithy… or maybe it had really begun somewhere in the Yorkshire Dales, with the giants we could both see in the hills. It is not every day that you meet someone with a world-view as tangential as your own.

Or perhaps it had begun in the shadows of long ago, as a current moving unseen through our lives that carried us to where we needed to be. Parallel lives in a curved infinity, meeting at a point of inevitability.

Wherever it began, the journey continues…

Rosie Amber, an avid reader and reviewer on “The Osiriad”.

This is a delightful book which looks at the role of stories throughout history and their purpose in explaining day and night, the seasons and life and death. By looking at the Egyptian Gods, Sue retells the birth of the Egyptian world through the eyes of the God Isis. The Egyptians are known across the world and the stories of their Gods are echoed in many other religions. In fact Sue adds her own thoughts at the end of this book about the importance of stories and their use in explaining life through pictures and images. She draws together beliefs that we still learn from stories if we can engage with the writing and share the messages. In fact a story can be a many layered article depending on the reader. I really enjoyed my own lessons from the book, it was a delight to read about the Gods in a short easy to read style and then to think about the messages that the Egyptians were giving their people and handing down to future generations to come.

Amazon review:

Although this is a fictional representation of what might have been the story and myth from several millenia ago, it is an excellent work, and provides wonderful insight into the mythology, and what it probably meant to the ancient Egyptians. Highly recommended reading.
