First Man in Rome (missing front cover) or The Grass Crown (front cover included...but detached)

These are the first two books in an incredibly well researched and beautifully written series on the formation of the Roman Empire.  These books chronicle the story of Gaius Marius and Sulla, and ultimately set the stage for Young Caesar.  One free with an order off my shelf, or I can send both for one credit (to cover shipping).  Let me know if I can send them your way!

Also, if Historical Fiction is your thing, I just listed Gatsby's Girl - a fun fictionalized account of the relationship between F. Scott Fitzgerald and his real life muse.  The author, Caroline Preston, weaves phrases and scenes from Fitzgerald's writing throughout the book, supposing possibilities for his inspiration.  Quick, easy summer read - check it out!
