The Village

A Novel for the Waking Age


Literary fantasy fiction with a metaphysical New Age theme. 
The plot incorporates the African Ubuntu philosophy with those for sustainable living. 
Addresses urgent topical issues in an entertaining thought provoking way. 

This place is about much more than just getting away from it all… 
The land’s a gift; the moment’s a gift, as are the beautiful stars and the good warm fire. When we’re united in loving appreciation of these simple blessings, nothing can divide us… That’s why all of us are here: to live out these ancient truths.” 

When a string of coincidences allow Ellen Turner to begin building her dream village, not everyone is supportive. With far more at stake than she ever envisaged, how will her self-sufficient system play out in the real world? 

What will become of those forced to seek shelter in the little community, and in what ways are they already written into its story? Just how important will a mysterious source of wisdom prove to be? And what happens when Ellen’s troubled past finally catches her up? 

Aimed at today’s flourishing western spiritual community The Village brings to life the welcome possibility of positive world change for those who search for it.

Rosina's next novel Foxheath Hall(title likely to change) is currently at 45k words. It does not have the fantasy element of The Village, but shares basic philosophies.

Refreshingly different. The author really draws you in with excellent character descriptions. A believable storyline with endless possibilities for the future of us all.

Rosina Gray

Rosina Gray grew up without a TV and every day was an exciting adventure. Her father read her Lord of the Rings when she was four years old, and she kept a diary from the age of eleven until she was in her twenties.

Following a Grammar School education, Rosina spent time working and studying in France, after which she had various jobs, including graphic designer and nurse. She spent a year volunteering on a kibbutz in N. Israel, before returning to the UK and later bringing up her daughter in rural Norfolk, during which time she was a home-maker and self-employed portrait artist. She began writing The Village in 2013 - the book has passed through many phases since then.

Rosina enjoys nineteenth century literature, cookery, yoga, psychology, modern philosophy, history, walking and making jewellery. She has one grand daughter and three dogs.
