The Boy and the Well of Memory
This novel is a work of historical fiction by Konstantina Ritsou based on historical facts. For the first time the story of Andrew de Moray, is told. As comrade in arms of Sir William Wallace and co-commander at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, he is an unsung hero of Scotland’s first war of independence. This story does justice to his contribution in the fight from English tyranny and the inspiration he gave to those who carried the torch of freedom, beyond his death.
In this novel the public life of the heroes, Andrew de Moray, William Wallace, Robert de Bruce, and other historical persons, is based, as much as possible, on historical facts. Their private life is historical fiction but still follows, as closely as possible, the stream of history, inspired also by some of the legends of the Scottish people.
About the author Konstantina Ritsou
The author is a medical doctor and worked in the past as a doctor in cytopathology. As a doctor she has worked in Sweden and UK, though mainly in Greece for the last three decades. She also holds a diploma of drama and specializes in acting, translating and directing theatre-mainly classical-including the works of Shakespeare, Molière, etc.
She has directed and translated, in modern Greek, the tragedies Ion, Hippolytus, Alcestis by Euripides, and the Persians by Aeschylus.
In Athens, 2009, Paroussia Publications released her historical novel “The Souls of the Lions seeking for justice” concerning the democracy of the de Witt brothers in Holland, in 17th century, which introduced
the social insurance for the first time. In 2010, again by Paroussia Publications, this afore mentioned novel was published as The Lion Souls in an English translation by the author.
She has performed many roles as an actress, although, of course, she was primarily devoted to her medical science until a serious health threat, an aneurysm, obliged her to retire from medical practice and to close her own theatre. Since then she has devoted most of her time to writing.
