50 Five star reviews

In The Golden Dice, sequel to The Wedding Shroud, three women follow very different paths to survive a ten year siege between Rome and the Etruscan city of Veii:

Caecilia forsakes Rome to return to her Etruscan husband, Vel Mastarna, exposing herself to the enmity of his people and the hatred of the Romans who consider her a traitoress…

Semni, a reckless Etruscan girl, becomes a servant in the House of Mastarna, embroiling herself in schemes that threaten Caecilia's children and her own chance for romance…

Pinna, a tomb whore, uses coercion to escape her grim life and gain the attention of Camillus, Rome's greatest general, choosing between her love for him and her loyalty to another…

Historical Fiction at its best, this second volume in the Tales of Ancient Rome series explores the lives of women in war while giving a glimpse into the religion and politics of Roman and Etruscan cultures, two great civilizations in ancient history.

The Golden Dice was judged runner-up in the international 2013 Sharp Writ Book Awards in general fiction, and was named as one of the top memorable reads of 2013 by Sarah Johnson, the reviews editor for the Historical Novels Review.
