The Wedding Shroud
About the book
In 406 BC, to seal a tenuous truce, the young Roman Caecilia is wedded to Vel Mastarna, an Etruscan nobleman from the city of Veii. Leaving behind a righteous society, Caecilia finds herself tempted by a mystical, hedonistic culture which offers pleasure and independence to women. Yet Mastarna and his people also hold dark secrets. Exploring themes of destiny versus self-determination and tolerance versus prejudice, The Wedding Shroud is a novel that vividly captures a historical time and place while shining a light on the lives of women of the ancient world.
