Second century AD Romans. This book really surprised me for a few reasons. Was dreading the length of the book, almost 500 pages.
I realized near the 400 page mark that i was dreading it ending so soon.
Story of a woman Libya who has a young son. Through her life she had been a slave, sold as a dancer and an infamia where others shun her she's not worth anything.
Her life has been a hard one and she's had to use her deceitful ways to get food at times for them to survive on.
Part I really enjoyed was learning about the Romans their culture and how it played a part in her life also. Rules are a bit different and there are a lot of them.
She's been sold so many times, from one to another and she hopes at some point she will be set free-her son also. She helps Wryn and others find out details of the betrayal that will occur but in order to get her son educated she sells that information to the enemy.
They each enjoy spending time with one another and Wryn is to wed so her days to become free are even shorter. Things do not go according to plan...
There is so much to this book, locations, action, politics, adventure, mystery, spying, children antics, ways of lifes of many different career choices, scriptures and what they meant to the Romans, and a bit of romance.
Translation key glossary at the end. Discussion questions listed at the end and acknowledgements. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
Would treasure reading more from this author. Didn't realize this was part of a series, I read it as a stand alone.
Received this review copy via Olivia Publishing via Bookfun.org and this is my honest opinion.
The storyline is very unique and it flows well. The characters are well developed and believable. The editing was good but needed more work, it was nowhere near perfect but not so bad as to make it unenjoyable.
The story is set in ancient Rome and there are words from that time/area but there is also a reference in the back of the book to give the meaning of the words. I do feel it would be better to have this reference at the beginning, especially when reading an ebook.
It is Christian historical fiction but not at all preachy. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
Being a free United States citizen, raised in modest comfort on the prairie, it is difficult to comprehend what life must have been like for a girl torn from her mother at a young age and branded with a star tattoo on her cheek to forever mark her as a slave.
Even as a freed slave, she would never be allowed to lead a “normal” life because of a background of forced prostitution.
But one man cared. He cared from the moment he first saw her, even though he did not realize the depths of love he would reach for the girl and her illegitimate son.
From start to finish, “Without Love” holds the reader spellbound, sometimes breathless, sometimes angry, but fulfilled by the elements of a good story when it is finished.
