Daughters of Rome

eBooks of the Month Historical Fiction

LoveReading View on Daughters of Rome

One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.

 

August 2011 Book of the Month.

The story of three manipulating female cousins through the reign of four Roman Emperors.  The girls are fictional but their setting historically accurate – gory, violent times, this is Gladiators for girls.  Don’t miss her first, Mistress of Rome, too; it’s a stunner.

 

The Lovereading view...

This sweeping, powerful epic tells the story of one of the bloodiest years in Rome's history through the eyes of two remarkable women fighting for survival in A.D. 69. The Roman Empire is up for the taking but in the end, though, there can only be one Emperor...and one Empress.

Sarah Broadhurst

Daughters of Rome Synopsis

The Year of the Four Emperors will change everything - especially the lives of two sisters with a very personal stake in the outcome. Elegant and ambitious, Cornelia embodies the essence of the perfect Roman wife. She lives to one day see her loyal husband as Emperor.

Her sister Marcella is more aloof, content to witness history rather than make it. But when a bloody coup turns their world upside down, both women must manoeuvre carefully just to stay alive. As Cornelia tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered dreams, Marcella discovers a hidden talent for influencing the most powerful men in Rome.
