"Against the rich background of ancient Pompeii, where the giant volcano Vesuvius quietly smolders, Chelsea Quinn Qarbro tells the gripping story of a Roman boy's struggle to master his chosen prefession, as well as the catastrophe that puts his skills--and his spirit to the ultimate test.
Enecus Cano has but one burning desire--to be a doctor's apprentice. But since such schooling usually costs far more than his family can pay, Enecus realizes he'll probably have to settle for any apprenticeship that comes along. So when Locadio Priscus, an experienced and respected physician, agrees to train Enecus, he and his family can hardly believe their good fortune."
