In the early life of the beautiful warrior queen Zenobia, she had an early teenage marriage to an unknown boy. She later unexplainably protected and befriended a handsome, popular Christian bishop in Antioch, Paul of Samosata, known as possibly the greatest Christian heretic in the ancient world. Their love affair and the dramatic consequences are imagined in this fictional romance of adventure and love.

One of the most beautiful and educated women of her time, Zenobia was a woman who conquered Egypt and challenged the Roman Emperor Aurelian for control of the ancient world. She gave her heart to a teenager in a doomed elopement. Later forced to marry the power prince of Palmyra, Zenobia could never leave the tragic love of her youth until death parted them on the banks of the Euphrates.
