About the book

FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR COMES A NEW SPELLBINDING RETELLING SET AT THE DAWN OF THE ROMAN WORLD

'Enthralling' Luna McNamara, author of PSYCHE AND EROS

________

Aeneas, the son of Venus, is destined for greatness, prophesised to father a people who will one day rule the world.

But behind every great man are the women the prophecies forget.
Creusa, Dido and Lavinia will never meet, yet they are united by the ambitions of one man whose life is pre-ordained to collide irreparably with theirs.

But if their destiny remains unwritten, can they determine the future for themselves?

This is the story of Rome's origins as it's never been told before, through the eyes of three women whose choices changed history.
