Roma Amor: A Novel of Caligula's Rome

 
9780692596326: Roma Amor: A Novel of Caligula's Rome

In this novel of 37 AD, which reviewers are calling "a complete page turner," "beautifully written," and "a great read," Caligula Caesar has just become Rome's new master. Senator Titus Carinna, who helped him succeed to the throne, knows the inexperienced young ruler needs a companion he can trust. It's a pity the Senator's older son, Caligula's closest friend, committed suicide after being charged with treason. But that still leaves Marcus, his second son.

Headstrong and hot-tempered, Marcus would rather prove his courage by leading legions against Rome's enemies. Yet when his father calls him home from the frontier, he has no choice but to befriend Caligula --the man he blames for not saving his brother.

Caught in a web of deceit, conspiracy, and betrayal reaching from Palatine mansions to the city's grimy, teeming streets, he will uncover a dark secret that threatens his family, the woman he desires, even his life... and may bring chaos to the young Roman Empire.

About the Author:

After earning a Phi Beta Kappa creative award in college for an early draft about a nobly-born charioteer, Sherry spent many years of research and revision developing ROMA AMOR into the story about fathers and sons that it wanted to be. She considers it a "joy" to immerse herself in the lives of first-century Romans -- and a distinct change from her day job as a professional copywriter. She lives on the coast of Maine with a native-born Viking and two cats.

Review:

"The first installment in a page-turning saga that revisits the heroes and villains of the grandest city of the ancient world.... Comes alive with the long gone characters who were its lifeblood" -- Kirkus Reviews

''Combines current political concerns, the wide lens of the serious historical novel, and emotional maturity and realism with an utterly splendid grasp of what it must have been like to live in Rome under Caligula's reign.'' --Sarah Smith, Agatha Award winner and New York Times Notable author
