Julia is taken from her mothers home to live with Octavian and his bride, Livia, who intends to groom Julia to be the perfect Roman matron. Julia rebels and is drawn to Romes poets, some of whom ignite her awakening passions. She meets Iullus, Marc Anthony’s son, and shares his passion for individual freedom. Their mutual attraction complicates Julias unsettled life, as her father has his own plans for her future. Twice Julia is forced to marry for political reasons. After her second husband’s death, while Octavian plans a third marriage for Julia, she and Iullus meet clandestinely, in the forest at Satyr ceremonies, in abandoned temples, and on the Forum steps in the dark of night. The Roman elite are scandalized, and when Julia’s father can no longer ignore what every citizen knows, the lovers must make desperate choices that rock the city of Rome and change the course of history in the Republic.
