Julia, Daughter of Rome, is the compelling tale of Julia, only child of the Roman leader Octavian, who inherited his power from the slain Julius Caesar. Julia is taken from her mother's home to live with Octavian and his bride, Livia, who is intent on grooming Julia to be the perfect Roman wife. Julia rebels and is drawn to Rome's poets and adventurers, one of whom is Iullus, Marc Anthony’s son, who ignites her awakening passions. She shares his interests and ideals but their mutual attraction complicates Julia's unsettled life, as Octavian has his own plans for her future. Defying her powerful father, the lovers meet clandestinely, in the forest at Satyr ceremonies, in abandoned temples, and on the Forum steps in the dark of night. The Roman elite are scandalized, and when Julia’s father can no longer ignore what every citizen knows, Julia and Iullus must make desperate choices that rock the city of Rome and change the course of history in the Republic.
