To quote a very small piece of the article:
"Chapter 3 is where I was brought to tears out of my grief over losing a character I felt attached to. In this scene, a young slave girl (a sclava) is pleading with a younger sclava friend of hers not to pass on and leave her alone, and it left me in literal tears."Readers' comments about books I've written always touch me in some way or another. Many, many thanks!
