About the Book

Captured by invading Roman Soldiers, 10-year-old Anthia is taken away from her island home in Greece and sold as a slave in Rome, which, at the time, was considered the “center of the world.” Living in a culture her family has regarded as inferior to their own, Anthia struggles to use the Greek values learned at home to shape a meaningful life in busy first-century Rome. In this historical tale, readers are given a window into the life and customs of civilized Greece and pre-Imperial Rome.

About the Author

Carol Fegté is a retired Waldorf-methods teacher who had the pleasure of sharing the customs and cultures of ancient worlds with her students. She is neither Greek nor Roman, but rather a happy countrywoman living in the California gold rush town of Rough and Ready, where she reads, writes, and enjoys her horse and garden.
