Havens Of Pompeii: Some Things Aways Survive
Description: Havens of Pompeii: Some Things Always Survive, a compelling work of historical fiction by Nicole Louw, paints a historically accurate picture of Ancient Pompeii. Louw's extensively researched portrait of Roman life in 79 AD before, during and after the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius includes descriptions of real homes, real people and the political system of the Roman Empire. Against the background of impending doom, injured gladiator Valerus falls in love with the shy yet ambitious dancing girl, Flavia -- one of three he presented to his father as a gift. As the relationship between nobleman and slave develops, Valerus' views on the world and his life shift radically, and he schemes to free her from her cruel fate. Yet soon everything will explode around them, in ways they would never have expected.
