    I have read all six of your books twice and have thoroughly enjoyed the character and plot development and the infusion of history too. It occurred to me that they lived a very sustainable life style which was caring to our wonderful planet. Everything was used and reused and the land and animals were treated with respect. I thought their wars very very brutal but wars are brutal today. It is better to look at how the land and people are treated in peacetime. For the most part I felt that the characters in your novels treated each other with respect and acceptance of differences.
    To summarize my ramblings, I have so enjoyed your novels and am eagerly and impatiently awaiting the next one.
    Thank you for writing them and God bless.

    OH! Thank you for these wonderful videos and pictures of Gotland! My favorite is the raukar at Gamlahamm, which looks like a dog! I look forward to seeing more of your adventures! I love the dress too!

    I love it all Octavia……my ancestors are Celt and Danish so these are my people you write about. Your people are so real and their lives so beautifully told, I am mesmerized with your telling. Thank you.

    Astonishing!!!Octavia, I have never before watched a significant chunk of this remarkable creation of yours. An unending flow of tales, a glossary, a dictionary, a cookbook, the architecture, the decorative arts, the religion, the music, the divinities, the everyday life and clothing, the home manufactures, the wars…………and on and on. I’m a bit afraid to step too close to your Gotland lest its fires suck me into its awesome reality.
    Love, Winnie
