In the blockbuster tradition of The First Man in Rome, Colleen
Mccullough’s monumental Masters of Rome series continues.
The man behind the legend … the women behind the man
Villain or hero? Debated for centuries, the volcanic soul of Julius
Caesar comes dramatically to life in this masterpiece of historical fiction
from the #1 bestselling author of The Thorn Birds.
In this sweeping saga, McCullough traces Caesar’s rise to prominence in
his world, beginning with his triumphant entry into a new battlefield—the Roman
Forum, where wars are waged with words and schemes, and where today’s ally may
be tomorrow’s foe. Caesar’s victories are not limited to the political arena,
however; he also conquers Rome’s noblewomen, including the powerful and
vindictive Servilia, mother of a youth called Brutus. Yet the one thing he
never gives to any of the women who love him or want him is himself—to Caesar,
love is just another weapon in his political arsenal.
Epic in scope,
razor-sharp in detail, Caesar’s Women paints an indelible portrait of a
man willing to seize any means of moving toward his ultimate goal: to be the
greatest of all Rome’s First Men, the leader of a world that echoes our own too
closely for comfort.
