A story of ancient Etruria. Young Egerius is brought up by women after his father's early death; but there are secrets in his father's family, and as he grows older, he learns that he has a family he has never met, and is the heir to more than his father's slim estate...
This is a chapter from 'Etruscan Blood', an epic novel of ancient Italy that will be published later this year.
