TY Book Recommendations 14

Ross Canning has been reading Valerio Massimo Manfredi's Spartan, and writes:-

This epic story is filled with passion, courage and adventure. It is the saga of a Spartan family, bound by the laws of the state to abandon one of their sons, who is lame. This boy is raised by a Helot, and during the course of the book he comes across his strong and courageous brother. They live out their story in a world dominated by the clash between the Persian Empire and Greece. I like this book because it shows you how, even though you are not perfect, you can still change the world.
