    The Wedding Shroud ePUB Ü The WeddingEpub wedding epub, shroud pdf, The Wedding book, The Wedding Shroud KindleA meticulously researched and well written book that falls short of my expectations overall because of the weakness of the main character and the absolutely ridiculous turn of the plot after the second half Warning this is a very long review containing a lot of ranting and disbelief on the reviewer's partCaecelia is a young Roman half caste Her mother was a noblewoman brought down from her high station in life by her marriage with a commoner as a stragegic alliance which brought her no ends of shameLiving on her husband’s estate away from the city of Rome Aemilia bore the shame of her marriage in seclusion by refusing to greet other matrons who sought to visitThanks to her mother Caecelia has it grounded into her at a very early age that marriage to anyone but a nobleman is a thing to be ashamed of as much as she loves and adores her commoner father Shunned by her high born relatives and ignored by her mother Caecelia spent her childhood running

    The Wedding Shroud ePUB Ü The WeddingEpub wedding epub, shroud pdf, The Wedding book, The Wedding Shroud KindleThe subtitle of this historical romance is “A Tale of Early Rome” but it should also say “A Tale of the Etruscans” I always think of the Etruscans as a mysterious people predating and then overlapping with the Romans before disappearing from history—about whom I thought we knew very little Elisabeth Storrs showed me how fully their world can be imagined based on the evidence of archaeology and ancient sources From translucent silken gowns gold embossed mirrors realistic painting

    The Wedding Shroud ePUB Ü The WeddingEpub wedding epub, shroud pdf, The Wedding book, The Wedding Shroud KindleI hope that Elisabeth Storrs has written the seuel to The Wedding Shroud by the time I set off on my next long haul flight It’s always difficult to find the right book to while away the long hours I want something not too arduous for a brain disoriented by lack of sleep and muddled time zones but I don’t want my mind insulted by inane pap either The Wedding Shroud is a well written historical novel with a twist It’s set way back in Rome’s ancient past when they were yet to become the most powerful empire of the ancient world Storrs has recreated the Etruscan city of Veii to tell her story of Caecilia Aemilius a young Roman girl whose loyalties are put to the test by her marriage to Vel Mastarna an Etruscan nobleman He’s twice her age scarred emotionally

    The Wedding Shroud ePUB Ü The WeddingEpub wedding epub, shroud pdf, The Wedding book, The Wedding Shroud KindleElisabeth Storrs first became fascinated with the mysterious Etruscan people ancient neighbours and enemies of the city of Rome when she saw the remarkable funerary carving that depicts a husband and wife under the same shroud It is a picture of euality between the sexes that would never have been seen at least as far as we know in Rome Driven by her fascination with this she set about writing a novel that has as its central character a young Roman woman Caecilia but which is primarily about the Etruscans into whose civilisation Caecilia is married against her will The story is set in the late 5th century BC when Rome was little but a fortified city surrounded by enemies among them the Etru

    The Wedding Shroud ePUB Ü The WeddingEpub wedding epub, shroud pdf, The Wedding book, The Wedding Shroud KindleI love Historical Fiction but I am tired of the usual Tudor Anglo French settingWhen I saw this book with a heroine centric focus set in Ancient Rome I was exitedThe plot was really engrossing and I found myself reluctant to put it downThe historical details were fascinating and it is obvious that the Author spent a lot of time in researching the backgroundThe writing was smooth the pace was goodHowever the heroine Cecelia was a ninny It's hard to give a book 5 stars when you want to kick the main protagonist in the headAt the start of the story she is a sheltered 18year old Understandably she is naiveAbout mid way through the book she actually seems to make some progress in her maturity level and decisionsJust when I thought she had grown up she then regresses and makes such a stupid hurtful choice to the hero that I almost threw down my iPad and walked awayThe hero however was the redeeming factor I really wante
