Welcome to the world of the Eagle & Dove

For those who have not been here before, 'The Eagle & The Dove' is a story I have been researching and developing for over 20 years. The idea first originated during my travels through Southern France and the mountains of Andalusia in Spain.
Unfortunately, due to family and work commitments, I never seem to find the time to write as much as I would like, but despite all the interruptions, I am finally getting closer to finishing the work.

The Background
The Eagle & Dove is a story of love, loyalty, companionship and bravery, set in Spain and southern Europe in troublesome and dangerous times. Religious persecution of Jews, Gypsies and Muslims by the fanatics of the church left a trail of pain and shame that soiled the name of the God these zealots worshipped.

Gypsies, Eagles, the Inquisition, soldiers, Mercenaries and farmers are just some of the people you can meet in the world of the Eagle & Dove.

Ballad of the Eagle and the Dove

Mystical valley, how still you lie
Your river is deeper, from tears you have cried.
What beauty and sadness lies buried within
Magical valley - what songs can you sing.

Tell me the story of a young Gypsy child
Who played in this valley and ran so wild
Tell me the legend, of an eagle in the sky
How did the two meet? How did the two die?

Beautiful valley, with your secrets so deep
Do the eagles still fly? Do the Gypsies still weep?
What happened in this valley a long time ago?
Or is the shame so great that we never will know?

They say that an eagle still flies high above
Calling for the child - one he did love
Legend tells that the eagle and child are now one
Soaring together - the eagle and dove.

Enchanted valley why are you so still?
I would just hear your story, I bear you no ill
The river can not wash the blood of the past
Tell us your mystery - share it at last.

Some say that the eagle and dove still fly
When the night is quiet, we may just hear their cry
Like two lovers from a romance, doomed by their fate
Tell us your secret - or is it to late?
