In the year 8 AD, at the age of fifty, the most famous poet in Rome, Publius Ovidius Naso, known to us as Ovid, is suddenly exiled by the Emperor Augustus for an unknown reason. His young and beautiful wife Pinaria stays behind to try to salvage something of their lives and to work to bring him home. A woman alone, she is handicapped by the powerlessness of her position. It is not until she leaves behind the world of men to search among the people Rome has forgotten: the women, the slaves, the runaways and temple prostitutes, that she begins to understand what has happened to her life and her husband's, and what the world around her really is.

This history based on events recorded by ancient historians Sallust, Tacitus, Cassius Dio, Suetonius, and others, reads like a novel. It explores the reigns of the Roman emperors Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero. The demands of heredity loomed large in their lives. Those who sprang from greatness must be great themselves, whether or not they had either the ability or the desire to be so. This book presents the challenges and dilemmas of the Caesars and their contemporaries in narrative form with interpolations of dialogue as the ancient writers did, taking the known facts and interpreting the characters through them, giving real people the motivations they may have had. This book provides readers a new thought-provoking look at one of the most fascinating families in history and one whose profound effect upon the world still touches us today.

Political intrigue: a novel on the life of Julius Caesar.

Marcus Caelius Rufus, a young politician, has holed up in a country town in the midst of a bloody and prolonged civil war. Great forces contend for Rome, and Caelius has ties to them all—the charismatic Julius Caesar, his beloved teacher Cicero, the hero Pompey the Great. Which side is he on? He must choose. Now he must reconsider who he is: his childhood and education, his loves and friendships, his complex relationship to Caesar, the man who has come to dominate his life. Before he is done, he will discover the shocking truth about Caesar, about Rome, and about himself. This book is a vivid and exciting read.
