Product Description

On the island of Rhodes, 227 BC, Tessa of Delos has served for ten years as a hetaira-a high-priced Greek courtesan-to a wealthy politician. In that time, she's lived in luxury, but as a virtual prisoner, serving at her master's whim. Though intelligent and beautiful, Tessa has learned to numb herself to all desires for freedom and love.

But when her owner meets a violent death, Tessa is given the chance to be free-if she can hide the truth of his death and maintain a masquerade until escape is possible. She joins forces with unlikely allies-a Hebrew houseservant named Simeon and Nikos, a seafarer who wants to work in the house of Tessa's owner.

Publisher's Description

Revised and updated from the original, Christy-award finalist Shadow of Colossus.

Enslaved in a World of Money and Power, Tessa Dares to be Free.

Raised as courtesan to wealthy and powerful men, Tessa of Delos serves at the whim of her current patron, the politician Glaucus. After ten years with him, Tessa has abandoned all desire for freedom or love, choosing instead to lock her heart away.

But when Glaucus meets a violent death in his own home, Tessa grasps at a fragile hope. Only she knows of his death. If she can keep it a secret long enough, she can escape.

Tessa throws herself on the mercy of the Greek god Helios, but finds instead unlikely allies in Nikos, a Greek slave, and Simeon, Glaucus’s Jewish head servant. As Simeon introduces her to a God unlike any she has ever known and Nikos begins to stir feelings she had thought long dead, Tessa fights to keep her heart protected.

As an assassination plot comes to light, Tessa must battle for her own freedom—and for those to whom she has begun to open her heart—as forces collide that shatter the island’s peace.

". . . Readers will find much to enjoy here: fine writing, suspense, mystery, faith, love, and a new look at an old story." —Publishers Weekly (for Garden of Madness)

Editorial Reviews

“Fast-paced adventure, fascinating characters and insights into the culture, politics and people of this ancient world make this book a unique and unmissable read.”
“Higley’s talent as a storyteller is obvious as she weaves the threads of Tessa’s salvation into a story that both inspires and entertains.”
“This is such a unique historical novel that it really sets itself apart from all others. Higley’s portrait of day-to-day life in the ancient world drew me in and her strong heroine kept me reading.”
“Blending suspense, romance, political intrigue, and a healthy dose of drama, Higley brings the struggles, class differences, and pagan culture of ancient Greece to vivid life. . . . Strong characterization combined with rich historical detail have won this book a home on my shelves of keepers.”
