Product description


A novel of never-ending pleasure... superbly innovative. It is a work of rare and irreverent intelligence. -- Le Figaro Litteraire

Moving... memorable... a richly poetic book about beauty and destiny, at once compelling and complex. -- Los Angeles Times

From the Inside Flap

Very little is known about the man who gave his name to romantic love, but bestselling novelist Chet Raymo has imagined his biography and brought it vividly to life on the page.

There has long been a suggestion that Valentine was a doctor, and Raymo has built his story around the romance of the physician Valentine and blind Julia, daughter of a Roman jailor. Their love story provides the central thread of this engrossing novel, which also brings alive the world of the Roman Empire at the time of Claudius II – a time when Christians were amongst those whose deaths provided public entertainment in the Flavian Amphitheatre and the Circus Maximus.

It is a novel with remarkable resonances, its ideas startlingly relevant to our own times: globalisation vs. fundamentalism, reason vs. superstition, the subversion of virtue by wealth – and the power of passionate love to overcome all obstacles to its consummation.
