‘Skillfully plotted and with vividly drawn characters, THE GOLDEN DICE is a suspenseful, romantic exciting drama…’
In The Golden Dice, sequel to The Wedding Shroud, three women follow very different paths to survive a ten-year siege between two age-old enemies:
Caecilia, a young Roman woman, 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 blackmail to escape her grim life and gain the attention of Rome’s greatest general, choosing between her love for him and her loyalty to another…
In this second volume in the Tales of Ancient Rome series, the lives of women in war are explored together with the sexuality, religion, and politics of Roman and Etruscan cultures, two great civilizations of ancient history.
The Golden Dice was judged runner- up in the 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 Historical Novels Review. The third volume, Call to Juno, is currently being written.
