‘“Julia: Daughter of Rome”. . . is a quick read, but a really good one at that. We’ve often heard about Octavian, the first Emperor of Rome, and all the stories that go along with his quest to the throne. However, a lot of us fail to realize that he had a daughter named Julia. And even fewer know her story. This tale follows her life as a strategic pawn for her father’s personal gain.’ ~ One of My Favorite Reads: August Edition (Aug 12, 2012) on Samantha Cangelosi’s Green Eggs and Sam Blog.
“Theodora of Constantinople” ‘really gave me a glimpse into the Byzantine Empire and the people who helped shape it. Theodora’s life was full of long journeys and heartache, but the way Elizabeth writes, you can’t help but feel like Theodora planned it all herself just to prove a point to all women out there. She wanted us to know that no matter how many times your life path leads you through a dark forest, you’ll eventually get to the meadow.’
