The Twins of Torsh is the story of identical twin brothers, Jason and Julius during a time of conquest when England was settling into being another Roman state (44 AD).
As youths, no one could tell the two brothers apart but as they grew to be men, each took a different path. Jason became a Roman soldier but over time he came to hate the Romans. He became a respected engineer and struggled his whole life with a corrupt friend who was also a Roman soldier. For a time Jason wondered which culture he really belonged to, Roman or Celt. When he appeared as a true Roman, his Celtic people rejected him.
Julius was a lazy sort and preferred to stay at home and farm, and raise children as a Celt. He also hated the Romans, but would never be more than a Celt. The irony comes when both Jason and Julius marry the same woman, taking turns as her husband. Julius never travels or sees Masada, Vesuvius erupting or the grandeur of Roma or the Colosseum. Jason travels extensively.
In the end the differences in their lives makes them very different in appearance, beliefs and happiness. The adventures of these two brothers are not so far from adventures experienced by men living during those turbulent times when two cultures were mixing.
