Review by: Fred Bubbers on Sep. 29, 2013 :
Aeneas, having escaped the destruction of Troy, escapes from a storm at sea and lands on the island of Dido, the just and strong-will Queen. They become lovers, but Aeneas must follow his destiny and travel on to found the city of Rome.

As always, Ms. Brooke's writing is sensuous and poetic in this retelling of a Virgil's classic romance. What emerges is a remarkable portrait of a woman with a will and sense of duty as strong as any man's, and the complexity of sexual identities and gender roles.
