Cloak and Stola

When the Roman legion sweeps through the farmlands of Syria, Sophie loses everything: her home, her family, even her freedom. Procerus is a soldier subject to the marriage ban recently instituted by Caesar Augustus. But after his legion wins a battle, he may have found a way to start a family anyway.

Procerus is looking for a "wife." Sophie's looking for a way forward. Neither are looking for love. But will they find it anyway?

Story of ancient Rome inspired by historical evidence of the de facto marriages of Roman legion soldiers.
