I Am Livia
by Phyllis T. Smith




Overview -

Her life would be marked by scandal and suspicion, worship and adoration...

At the tender age of fourteen, Livia Drusilla overhears her father and fellow aristocrats plotting the assassination of Julius Caesar. Proving herself an astute confidante, she becomes her father's chief political asset--and reluctantly enters into an advantageous marriage to a prominent military officer. Her mother tells her, "It is possible for a woman to influence public affairs," reminding Livia that--while she possesses a keen sense for the machinations of the Roman senate--she must also remain patient and practical.

But patience and practicality disappear from Livia's mind when she meets Caesar's heir, Octavianus. At only eighteen, he displays both power and modesty. A young wife by that point, Livia finds herself drawn to the golden-haired boy. In time, his fortunes will rise as Livia's family faces terrible danger. But her sharp intellect--and her heart--will lead Livia to make an unbelievable choice: one that will give her greater sway over Rome than she could have ever foreseen.
