Review of "The Wedding Shroud"

The Wedding Shroud (Tales of Ancient Rome, #1)The Wedding Shroud by Elisabeth Storrs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A closer, intriguing glimpse into the people of ancient Rome. The author skillfully interweaves one woman's struggle with her identity, having come from two different social classes, while being used as a pawn much like Helen of Troy. She is forced to marry a wealthy man from her country's enemy as a bargaining chip against civil war. Past and present struggles are displayed in this epic, consuming historical fiction.
