Bestselling HISTORICAL CHRISTIAN ROMANCE CLEAN Christian Women's Romance (and no violence or foul language) Book TWO of the Early Christian Series When Marcus and Julia finally locate Tiro and Paula in the city of Corinth, they find all is far from well. Tiro's aristocratic parents have arranged for him to marry the unscrupulous Lady Drusilla, who is eager to marry him to advance her social standing. However, Tiro's heart belongs to the servant girl, Paula. Can true love find a way? Or will Lady Drusilla's evil plans rule the day? PLEASE NOTE. The people of those times in this book spoke Latin; they did not speak English. What's more, they spoke conversational Latin, not a formal sounding Latin. People back in those times spoke in the same manner and tone as we do now - only they were speaking in Latin. Of course the book is written in English, not Latin, but people back then did not speak in some kind of weird, formal language; they spoke in modern (to them, just as our language is modern to us), conversational Latin, the tone of which was the exact equivalent of how we speak today, so the language in this book is accurately portrayed. Back then they spoke in the modern vernacular, just as we today speak in the modern vernacular. It is necessary to translate conversational (and modern to them) Latin with conversational, modern English. They did not speak in some weird, stilted, formal, old-fashioned way. For example, the main character calls her mother "mom." The translation of the Latin word mater is "mother" or "mom." This is from a Latin to English dictionary: "mater-, matri-, matro- matr- (Latin: mother, mama, mom)." People of this time and culture simply called their mothers Mater, which in English is Mom. Again, this book is written in English, not Latin, and it is historically accurate in both language and setting. Available in the Early Christian Series: Book ONE: Romans Book TWO: Corinthians Coming soon! Book THREE. Ephesians.
