I loved this story which breathes life into characters from history long overlooked. The women of Pompeii’s brothel are brilliantly, warmly and respectfully depicted and I adored laughing along with them, dreaming with them and sharing their hopes.

What the Critics are Saying

Hope and humour runs through this powerful, moving story - I loved it! Elodie portrays the brutal indignities and tragedy of these women's lives with so much warmth, sensitivity and respect. I was captivated by Amara - her strength, compassion and her determination to thrive in a cruel, unequal world. I can't wait to follow the rest of her story.

Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne

An utterly gripping story. It humanises the men and women who had their humanity taken away from them, and helps to remind us that the brothels of Pompeii were far more than seedy tourist attractions.

Daisy Dunn, author of In the Shadow of Vesuvius
