Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Spanning two thousand years, this novel follows four characters whose struggles resonate across the centuries: an early Christian child martyr; a medieval monk on crypt duty in a church; a Medici princess of Moorish descent; and a contemporary field biologist conducting an illicit affair. This quartet grapple with the physicality of bodies, the necessity for sacrifice, and the power of love to sustain and challenge faith. Their small rebellions are witnessed and provoked by an omniscient, time-travelling Satan who, though incorporeal, nonetheless suffers from a heart in search of repair.
Subject: Rome (Italy) > History > Fiction.
Genre/Form: Historical fiction.
