Publisher's Summary

Ashlynn James was a southern Indiana country girl working on an archaeological dig along Hadrian's Wall in the Anglo-Scottish border country when she finds an ancient Roman coin among the rubble. Reading aloud the Latin inscription upon the coin's face, Ashlynn finds herself swept back in time to one of the ancient world's most dangerous empires, Roman occupied Britain. Enslaved, tortured, and molested beyond human endurance, Ashlynn climbs to the top of Hadrian's Wall and steps off into the darkness. Broken, but breathing Ashlynn survives the fall and is taken by Pict raiders to their village. Will Ashlynn find herself in the same torturous life of an abused slave or will she find, in this cruel land, a place to call home?

Terrible, romantic slush

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Do not read this book if you are remotely interested in the history of the period. The worst book I have ever listened to.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer Musgrave again?

No

How could the performance have been better?

It was fine.

Any additional comments?

If you are going to write a book set in an historical period, more historical background is needed.
