Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i have sadly just finished reading this wonderful book from a first time author.Tt is hard to believe considering the free flowing well written natural dialogue and story plot that this is a first novel.! I only had wished that there would be more and more chapters following the lives of all these interesting and sympathetic characters against the accurate background of Rome during those days transcribed. This was a page turner and any one reading this book should, like myself, become hooked very early on to the individual stories and how they play out during this novel. Congratulations to Elizabeth Guider and this should not be the first and last time we hear of this unique and engaging writer...that's for sure...GIVE US MORE!!

Wonderful descriptions of Rome. Good read but a disturbing page or two that I skipped due to description of a medical procedure.

Having reported to Elizabeth for over a decade, I can say that it is no wonder she has made such a strong impression on readers with her first novel of which I read an early draft. She is a flawless writer, a great editor, and an extraordinarily bright and perceptive person with a colorful history and personality to boot.
