Publisher's Summary

10th Anniversary Edition

This story of ambition, love, and political intrigue brings to life colorful characters and an exotic time and place. In A.D. 412 Alexandria, against the backdrop of a city torn by religious and political strife, Selene struggles to achieve her dream of becoming a physician - an unlikely goal for an upper class girl. Hypatia, the famed Lady Philosopher of Alexandria and the Prefect Orestes offer their patronage and protection. But will it be enough to save Selene from murderous riots, the machinations of a charismatic bishop and - most dangerous of all - her own impulsive nature?

"Fans of Gillian Bradshaw’s classic The Beacon at Alexandria may especially enjoy Selene and find a promising new historical novelist who shares the same gift for wonderfully researched, vividly evoked, good old-fashioned storytelling." (The Historical Novel Society)

"This book is outstanding!" (Lacuna: Journal of Historical Fiction)

"Does what historical fiction does best - weave historical fact, real-life historical figures, and attention to detail with page-turning, plot-driven fiction." (The Copperfield Review)

"An entertaining and enlightening novel...a fine read through and through." (Midwest Book Reviews)
