Overview

Sabellius tragically loses his first wife Lydia in childbirth. He leaves Rome and returns to northern Africa to work on his father's estate. There he is thrown together with the young and lovely Hecate, a Roman maidservant that Portia, Sabellius' mother, "adopted". Hecate also lost her companion when her husband, Sabellius' younger brother Epigonus, was lost at sea. The two young people are thrown together on the estate. They finally realize that they are in love with one another. Before Sabellius can declare his love to Hecate, a young evangelist proposes marriage to her, begging Sabellius' father Aristaeus, the master of the estate, for her hand.

All is not well at the estate, since Portia, Sabellius' mother, is upset with his father, Aristaeus, a Greek sea captain, who is constantly at sea. Portia is still torn by her past life as the daughter of a wealthy and powerful Roman equestrian in Leptis Magna. This comes to a head, when Portia, Sabellius and Hecate, travel to Leptis Magna, to honor the Roman emperor Lucius Septimius Severus, who is a distant cousin. The powerful Gaius Fulvius Plautianus, another distant cousin, who was Portia's childhood sweetheart, is there, and attempts to win Portia for himself. Portia has a powerful life-changing experience at the tomb of her parents, when she is finally able to visit there. She must decide between the heritage of her past or the heritage of her heart. The trip to Leptis Magna is not without excitement, since it includes a fight by Sabellius, who is armed with a spear, with a lion in a crowded arena, a a noisy banquet where Plautianus takes Portia home, and a dramatic confrontation between Plautianus and Sabellius over his mother.
