A riveting, historical tale set in first-century Rome, The Divining chronicles one young woman’s spiritual quest to discover her destiny through the powerful gift of second sight—and save entire future generations.

Ancient Rome: 54 C.E. Nineteen-year-old Ulrika is plagued with strange visions and dreams. In order to discover the truth behind her past and her unusual powers, Ulrika embarks on a dangerous journey to her father’s homeland, Germania. There, she discovers her calling, a rare gift known as the Divining.

Sent on a quest to find her destiny, she travels far and wide, from ancient Germania to the vast and exotic countries of Syria, Babylon, and Persia. Along the way she meets wise spiritual guides—men, women, and spirits alike—who teach her to harness her ability to heal and protect others. Ulrika’s journey also brings her close to the handsome trader Sebastianus Gallus, who must depart for his own quest to the Far East to gain riches for the powerful emperor Nero. But can Ulrika reunite with the man she loves, fulfill her profound destiny, and usher in a new era in Rome under the threatening rule of Nero?

A powerful, spiritual story of romance, betrayal, faith, and courage, The Divining stunningly brings to life one young woman’s daring role in shaping the entire ancient empire of Rome.

Horrible. No respect for (even a bit of) historical accuracy, no understanding of the social mores of the times. How such writers get awards is beyond me. Suitable for 16 year-olds with a rebellious streak.
