AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From bestselling and award-winning author Frances Watts comes the first in an incredibly exciting new series of standalone historical novels. Set in Ancient Rome, The Raven's Wing tells the story of Claudia, who is wrenched from her happy life with her aunt and uncle to return to the home of her senator father, whom she hasn't seen since her mother died when she was very young. Soon Claudia starts to uncover the true reasons behind her father's newfound interest, and finds herself an unwitting pawn in her new stepmother's plots and schemes. Full of intrigue, romance and humour, The Raven's Wing takes you back to life in Ancient Rome, but with a voice that is entirely fresh and relatable for young women today.' (Publication summary)
