Interesting historical view of Roman Britain

It has stood for 3 centuries at the edge of an empire - a massive structure built to keep the Roman conquerors separate and safe from barbarians. Now in 368 AD, a senator's daughtor has come to Britannia's shores, a beautiful, enigmatic noblewoman who's destined to be the bride of an ambitious tribune.
But Valeria's arrival and mysterious disappearance threaten to unleash jealousy and pasion conspiracies and power plays, and an epic battle between Rome's brutal overlords and the proud Celtic warriors that could topple Hadrian's Wall and shake a tired and tottering Empire to its core.

I enjoyed this book very much. I am a history freak and loved reading about my English, Scottish and Irish barbarian ancestors who painted themselves blue and worshipped the rocks and trees. Very interesting descriptions of the Romans and the 80 mile wall they built to contain the barbarian hoards of northern Brittania. William Dietrich writes a good story and is easy and interesting to read. I have ordered three more of his books! Geny
