During a bitter siege between Rome and the Etruscan city of Veii, three women follow different paths to survive.
Caecilia, Roman born but Etruscan wed, forsakes Rome to return to her husband, Vel Mastarna, exposing herself to the enmity of his people while knowing the Romans will give her a traitor's death if Veii falls. Semni, a reckless Etruscan servant in the House of Mastarna, embroils herself in schemes that threaten Caecilia's son and Semni's own chance for love. Pinna, a destitute Roman prostitute, uses coercion to gain the attention of Rome's greatest general, at the risk of betraying Caecilia' s cousin.
Each woman struggles to protect herself and her love in the dark cycle of war. What must they do to challenge Fate? And will they ever live in peace again?
The Golden Dice, the sequel to The Wedding Shroud, is the second book in the Tales of Ancient Rome series. The third book, Call to Juno, will be published in 2016.
