Mary Ray (1932 - )

Sword Sleep
Faber, 1975


Flavius has come to Athens when his father was appointed procurator by Nero. He is ill, and has visions both of a soldier in Alexander's army and of a Roman tribune assigned to his father. As time goes on, he learns more about both men, one living and one dead. Finally, he is "exorcized" and free of his visions. Except for some annoying scenes - Flavius plays chess, the tribune is about to become a Christian and Flavius is exorcized - this was a well-written book for young adults. The insertion of Christianity into the story was gratuitous but not overwhelming. -Ruth Breindel 8/99
