Overview

JARS OF CLAY

Sixteen year old Helena Vibius is the daughter of a wealthy business man in the city of Carthage, North Africa in the year 199AD. She's not granted a tutor like her two older brothers are and must be satisfied with the teachings of her father. Which she is not.

Eighteen year old Lucius is a freeman--not a slave--living and working on the Vibius compound. His biggest desire is to learn about the world and one day leave Carthage to see it. A serendipitous meeting with the master's daughter presents an opportunity. Should he take it?

Helena agrees to secretly teach him, a rebellious gesture that surely could do no real harm--as long as they are not caught. And she mustn't fall for this servant boy, either.

Sometimes one does what one must not.

BROKEN VESSELS

Based on a true story.

With no way to prevent Helena from marrying another, Lucius flees to Rome to seek his fortune and mend his broken heart.

In a loveless marriage with a child to care for, Helena finds comfort in the most unlikely place--with her brother amongst the Christians. The religious group is mostly ignored by the Pagan populace, until the Emperor returns to the city and celebrations are planned. There's a shortages of criminals for the games and Christians are now sought out for arrest.

Fate brings Lucius back to Carthage, where his only wish is that he will get a glimpse of the girl he still loves. But when he finally sees Helena, it's under the worse possible circumstance...
