Guardian of the Flame
In a city ravaged by the clash of cultures, one woman fights for solitude. Will a Roman soldier destroy her peace?
Alexandria, 48 BC. Sophia has spent nearly twenty years as the keeper of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, alone in her task and in her heart. But when the wealthy capital of Egypt is invaded by Julius Caesar and his Roman legion, Sophia’s peace is shattered and her lighthouse invaded. The Roman general would steal both her country and its queen, the Greek Cleopatra, and when his military strategy endangers the city’s best scholars and their secret invention, Sophia must discover a way to protect the men. But as the city prepares for inevitable war, Sophia finds that the Roman centurion tasked with invading her lighthouse is also invading her heart.
