From the Editor

What do the ancient gods have against bold, brave women? Historically, when a woman has ambitions, she’s taken to task for her hubris. Or, if the gods don’t strike her down, she’s driven to self-sacrifice in order to achieve her aim. Not so for Zenobia, the only woman to ever challenge the Roman Empire. Yes, the gods punished her. Yes, she paid a steep price for protecting her people. But she never backed down; she never gave up her cause.

When author Libbie Hawker delivered the manuscript to me, I finished the first chapter thinking, Man, this Zenobia is a piece of work. Even I wanted to take her down a notch. But as I read on, it became clear that her ambition was borne not of greed but of her loyalty to her city and her family. As the story developed, I softened toward Zenobia and even rallied to her cause. Here is a woman who knew what she was capable of. She knew that if she didn’t put her life on the line, her people would be enslaved by the Romans—and she wasn’t about to let that happen.

History hasn’t been kind to Zenobia. She’s long been portrayed as a power-grabbing warrior queen. In Daughter of Sand and Stone, Libbie Hawker has finally given Zenobia a chance to be much more than that. Here she is a devoted mother, a passionate lover, and a fierce defender of her people. If only she were alive today…I’m sure she’d waste no time punching through the glass ceiling.

Editorial Reviews


“Richly detailed and meticulously researched—Libbie Hawker brings the ancient world vibrantly to life.” —Kate Quinn, national bestselling author of Lady of the Eternal City

“Libbie Hawker writes exquisitely layered historical novels with a deft, fresh voice. Her heroines are at once powerful and completely real, and she draws them with both compassion and a keen sense of observation of human nature.” —V. M. Black, New York Times bestselling author

Daughter of Sand and Stone is both tragic and beautiful, the storytelling so atmospheric and well-drawn that I felt as though I was breathing the desert air at Zenobia’s side.” —Amalia Carosella, author of Helen of Sparta

“Fans of historical fiction about Cleopatra will want to pick up Daughter of Sand and Stone and read about the headstrong princess who defies family expectations, controls her life, gains the throne, and challenges the Roman Empire.” —New York Journal of Books
