Duty. Honor. Tyranny. Love.
Ever since Lucius read of the heroic exploits of Caesar, he dreamed of the glory of Rome and of securing his own great name. But his first station as a centurion is in the backwaters of Jerusalem.
Haunted by the crucifixion of Jesus, yet eager to learn more of this supposed King, he seeks out His followers, soon becoming enthralled with one Mary Magdalene. But before his curiosity is quenched and any romance catches fire, he is summoned to lead conquests against the barbarians of Gaul. There the hardships of battle, year after year, wear down a heart that was just beginning to come alive. Mary continues to journey toward God, while Lucius drifts further and further away.
Decades later, life-worn and weary, their paths cross again during the Christian persecutions in northern Italy, and they must choose to serve either love or duty.
