They had no word for what towered over them,
what created the richly fertile land booming with life beneath them...but ignorance will not save them.
She wakens like every other day for the past two months in Pompeii, hating her life with a ferocity fed by the violent hand of her
piggish husband...but unlike every other day, this day is going to CHANGE Daria's life...forever.
HER LAST DAY, a moment by moment recounting of a demon no one knew clawed on
fiery feet beneath the land they all treated with superior disdain.
Daria, wife of Titus the wealthy
shoe maker hates the way the ground shakes. She's from Rome and Roman ground would never be so rude as to tremble beneath the mighty
Caesar Titus, son of the great Vespasian and his Senate.
Here in Pompeii the citizenry thinks they are above the gods and far too wealthy not to be cherished by the rulers of the after-life.
Slavery, an accepted cruelty, is a part of the Roman fabric, and nowhere is it more happily celebrated than here in Pompeii.
Acteon, given to Daria by her husband Titus the moment he returns from Rome with Daria as his wife, is her only comfort, her only "friend" here in her husband's domain.
They had no word for VOLCANO...but
Vulcan, god of fire, does not make distinctions between the wealthy and the slaves of poverty and misuse.
