I'm captivated and in love

With a book. Another book. This book will probably share the top spot with the no.1 favourite book "The Medici Curse". I got this new book yesterday, and I just can't put it down.

Mistress of Rome is about a slavegirl, a "noble"woman and a gladiator in citta eterna in the years 81 ---> AD.
It's captivating, all consuming, heartbreaking lovestory is what got me hooked I guess. You can almost feel the agony, the joy, the love, the longing, the hot summer air of Rome (for those of you who've been there during the summer heat, ya'll know what I mean)

In the bookstore I was debating between this one and one about a boy in renaissance Florence and Venezia. Since most of my recent books are about something or someone in renaissance Florence (Medici Secret, Medici Curse etc) I thought I'd go for Rome and some centuries earlier, and I have not regretted it so far!

Gotta go, I have to keep on reading!

I recommend this book!

Jeg er utdannet Gullsmed, og har videreutdannet meg som Edelstensfatter i Firenze, Italia. Jeg er veldig interessert i historie, spesielt middelalder & renessansen. Jeg spiller (mye) golf, og drmmer om kjpe et torp p Hedmarken, med solsvidde, laftede hus, med gress p taket, ha verksted i stabburet og bake mitt eget brd. <3
