Three sparkling stories of love, war, and finding your true destiny provide a glimpse of the dynamic and proud Byzantines at the height of the empire's splendor.
A young empress wins the love of her husband. A charismatic soldier gambles to save the lives of thousands. And a forgotten princess creates a legacy that will stand through the ages.
About the Author
Eileen Stephenson was born in Fort Worth, Texas but spent most of her life in the Washington, DC area. She has degrees from both Georgetown University and George Washington University (neither involving the Byzantines) and is married with three daughters. Her interest in Byzantine history all started one fateful day when every other book in the library looked boring except for John Julius Norwich's A Short History of Byzantium.
