The Emperor's Virgin ePub download

I picked up this book to fill a rainy day. It quickly drew me into the story and I couldn't put it down. The story line included Roman emperors, vestal virgins and a young moralistic officer on the rise. Each individual tested their own beliefs against the corruption of the Roman system. Who will win out? It held me until the end. Even more fascinating was when I discovered that some of the events and rituals that I thought were created for the story line were actually historical fact. The sexual rituals, the dinner parties, the punishments meted out are all true which made me appreciate the novel even more.
truly beautiful and original but i found it difficult to get off the ground. definitely better than 90 percent of the writing out there. i hope more people read her books, both fiction and non. she is, to me, the most important contemporary writer available. she moves me to tears, to flight, to trans-dimensional metamorphosing and back home. gifted and generous. fearless and humble. she give everything and then watches and waits to see (it seems).
