Throughout her life, author Isabel Wallace loved to express herself through writing, be it prose or poetry. “The Lion's Carcass” (published by Lulu), published posthumously, is Wallace’s fresh, new retelling of the classic biblical story, Samson and Delilah.
Set in the county of Somerset, England, during the 1970s, “The Lion’s Carcass” updates the classic story of Samson and Delilah. When Sam and Dee fall passionately in love, their union becomes the catalyst that starts a chain of events steeped in jealousy.
Wallace’s keen insight on relationships drives the story as Sam and Dee’s love begins to crumble around them. A thrilling love story of passion and betrayal, “The Lion’s Carcass” will delight readers until the last page.
An excerpt from “The Lion’s Carcass”:
“The solstice sunrise on Bantock Hill was a yearly event for the Philistines and Dee was expecting their arrival but no one came and when the dawn broke the east with its first strip of daylight it was for Sam and Dee alone. The sun rose, a giant glowing orb like a red moon in a sky that was a pink and cirrus sea that washed its weird tide of colour and unfathomed emotion over the man and the girl of Bantok Hill.”
