Share Article

Set in the latter half of the fourth century in the Roman Empire, a time and place not often frequented in fiction, this new novel blends history and imagination.

Frances Webb's "Innocence and Gold Dust"

Eutropius is an orphan who is castrated as a baby to increase his worth as a slave. And as a slave, he struggles with his lack of social and sexual power, which then turns into a lust for wealth and political power. Eutropius uses questionable methods to gain money and prestige.

As he works his way up, public outrage over such high standing for a eunuch threatens to knock him back down again. Scenes in this novel based on historical events surround crazy emperors, greedy politicians, well-meaning bishops and womanizing generals, giving readers a vivid look into a world they’ve likely never seen.

About the Author: Frances Webb is an award-winning writer living near Philadelphia. While traveling in Turkey, she absorbed Eutropius’ geographical environment and Rome’s declining culture. The writings of ancient and current historians supplemented this research.
