Her mother holds a secret and later, faced with a similar situation, Antonia, trusting her own decision and not acting as her mother had, reacts completely differently.From the bland title and ambiguous description, I didn't know what to expect.

    2. Romanzo storico, in cui Antonia, la protagonista, si ritrova a vivere gli sconvolgimenti politici e sociali avvenuti a Roma fra l'impero di Galba e quello di Vespasiano.Fra assassini politici, colpi di stato e guerre civili Antonia, appartenente ad una delle piĆ¹ importanti famiglie patrizie romane, si ritrova a dover cercare di capire come vuole vivere la propria vita.
