Young Sara lives a privileged life but a constrained life as a Senator's daughter in Carthage, her home on the North African coast. But, in one horrific afternoon, everything will change forever. Her beloved brother is killed, and she and her father must flee for their lives before the Romans attack the city of Carthage. They are now wanted and hunted. They hastily gather a cargo to trade across the sea, but no sooner have they left the African coast than they face more problems, first a tempest, then ruthless pirates, vengeful merchants, and finally the Roman Navy itself. Then a devastating turn of events leaves Sara alone at sea, wondering whom she can turn to, whom she can actually trust again. Returning to Carthage is no longer an option, yet Sara has no destination insight. With danger at every turn, and constantly at her back, she must go on and rely on her own wits to survive in a man's world and somehow lead her boat to freedom. An heart-pounding, rip-roaring, non-stop good adventure tale that brings the anicent world to life.
