To Strive, To Seek

by A.J. Hall

Originally written for the 2014 Renault Fic Exchange, as a gift for Lilliburlero. The prompt requested a crossover with the Marlows books by Antonia Forest, and a story dealing with issues of class. Bonus prompt requests included Laurie and Ralph after the events of The Charioteer, and how the boy Mervyn got on following Ralph's gift to him of the *East Africa Pilot*.

The action of the story takes place shortly before, during and immediately after the events of Falconer's Lure by Antonia Forest, and some eight years after the events of The Charioteer by Mary Renault.

The smallest thing can change a life. In Mervyn's case, it was the position of a bed in a surgical ward in war-time Bridstow and the chance gift of a copy of the East Africa Pilot.

Note this book now has new high resolution images for Kindle (mobi) and a high res version specifically for Apple iBooks (iBooks).
