A stunning debut,
This review is from: The First Ladies of Rome: The Women Behind the Caesars (Hardcover)
This is history as it should be written - lively, entertaining, engaging and soundly grounded in fact. The scope of Anneliese Freisenbruch's research and knowledge is impressive, and she brings with it the ability vividly to tell the astonishing stories of these long-dead empresses for a modern audience. Highly recommended.
