A.D. 69. The Roman Empire is up for the taking. The Year of Four Emperors will change everything-especially the lives of two sisters with a very personal stake in the outcome. Elegant and ambitious, Cornelia embodies the essence of the perfect Roman wife. She lives to one day see her loyal husband as Emperor. Her sister Marcella is more aloof, content to witness history rather than make it. But when a bloody coup turns their world upside-down, both women must maneuver carefully just to stay alive. As Cornelia tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered dreams, Marcella discovers a hidden talent for influencing the most powerful men in Rome. In the end, though, there can only be one Emperor...and one Empress.

Amazing author

Unfortunately I thought Mistress of Rome was the first book in this series, but that definitely didn't diminish my enjoyment of this novel. I love history and Kate Quinn gives me my fill of history while building a world that I can somewhat relate too. She turns historical figures into tangible people. I can't wait to start the next novel in this series I have become invested in all the characters

Interesting character construction. Interesting how destinies of 4 women connected by blood but so different as characters is changed by politics and men. All 4 of them are so clearly different in the beginning and then each one of them becomes the opposite the end.
