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.

It's an intriguing beginning,, but it isn't a good idea to preview a novel by publishing a chapter that's full of typos and punctuation errors. The frequent substition of a question mark for the first letter of a sentence may be a problem of converting one word processor format to another. But there are places, where a sentence is incorrectly divided, sometimes with two punctuation marks together. Also sentences without spaces in between, and a few other problems. I read it first in PDF format, which can sometimes be a problem, but the same errors appear in the epub version.
