The Virgin's Tale

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
Rome, 63BC. Offered up by her parents at the age of six to become a Vestal Virgin, one of six hand-picked women who symbolically protected the Roman Republic, Aemilia has spent her entire adult life in the all-female, strictly-guarded Temple of Vesta. But temptation has led her to commit a mortal sin, and she is sentenced to death as Virgins must die, buried alive in a pitch-black tomb. As the end draws near, Aemilia looks back over her claustrophobic, restricted life: the intense friendships she formed; the implacable enemies she made; and, finally, the passionate but forbidden romance which caused her downfall - and yet may be her only hope. A tantalising glimpse into a little-known, forbidden world, THE VIRGIN'S TALE is the moving, erotic and highly-charged story of a woman who dared to risk everything for love.
