After relocating from England to Malta in 2006, Gordon Edgar Weston dedicated considerable time to studying various facets of Maltese prehistory. This research culminated in his 2010 publication, The Maltese Cart-Ruts: Unravelling an Enigma. He followed this with Clapham Junction: 3,000 Years of Maltese Heritage in 2015. Weston’s most recent work, Christina and the George Cross Island marks a shift from prehistoric to modern Maltese history. Opting for the historical novel format, he believed this approach would resonate more broadly with readers. Christina is crafted as a historical narrative, aiming to engage a wider audience with its blend of fact and fiction.
