In Ludwigshain, a Junker estate in East Prussia, Countess Marion von Adler celebrates an exceptional harvest. But this is soon requisitioned by Russian troops. When Marion tries to stop them, a Russian Captain strikes her. His Lieutenant, Ian Fermor, defends Marion’s honour, but is stabbed for his insubordination. Abandoned by the Russians, Fermor becomes a divisive figure on the estate.
Close to death, Fermor dreams of the Adler, a numinous eagle entity, whose territory extends across the lands of Northern Europe and which is mysteriously connected to the Enlightenment. What happens next will change the course of human history…
Praise for The Coronation:
"The novel explores the themes of belonging, outsiders, religion and war… all filtered through the lens of the other-worldly."
A. Deane, Page Farer Book Blog
"This wonderful historical fictional tale will hold your attention as the author weaves a storyline that has different creative plots, along with a spiritual message."
"Some authors deposit their characters in the midst of history, showing how their lives parallel historic events. Then there are authors like Justin Newland who bend history to their will and use fantastic elements to show us what could have been."
Jathan and Heather
"This was a wonderfully told story that I thoroughly enjoyed."
