About the Book

- Italy, 69 AD -

A Romeo & Juliet story set in 1st Century Italy with an awesome ending!

Claudia: The twenty-year-old daughter of the Roman Magistrate attends a Christian church where she meets and falls in love with the son of the bishop.

Anthony: The son of the bishop and a local merchant, he falls in love with Claudia as he teaches her about Christianity.

Marcus: Claudia’s father betroths her to his assistant, Darius.

Aurelia: Claudia’s aunt arrives after serving as a Vestal Virgin for thirty years with hopes of marrying her childhood love, Darius.

Step back in time and experience what it would have been like to be the daughter of the Roman magistrate, curious about the new sect of Christianity. Betrothed to a man she doesn't love, in love with a man her family would disapprove of, told that the gods she grew up believing in are false, Claudia learns to seek and follow God’s will while coping with her tyrannical father’s plan for her future and his goal of maintaining his “dignitas.”
