Anna Lowenstein: The Stone City The Stone City.
A Captive's Life in Rome


A Historical Novel


Snatched from her peaceful homestead in Celtic Britain, Bivana is transported to the legendary city of Rome.
Struggling to come to terms with the loss of everyone and everything she has ever known, but determined to survive, she slowly adapts to a life of slavery and to the alien culture which surrounds her. Her relationship with another slave brings her into contact with the Nazarenes, activists in a fanatical new religious movement. She had hopes of making a fresh start, but what are her chances of surviving a clash with the authorities?


Since its first publication in 1999, "The Stone City" has become well known and loved in its Esperanto translation, and has been translated by fans into French and Hungarian. This revised edition of the original English version includes several additional scenes.


Anna Lowenstein
became interested in the Romans when she visited Italy over thirty years ago, and was awestruck by her first view of the Pantheon. She wondered what impression it must have made on a barbarian who had never seen a stone building before, let alone architecture as magnificent as the houses and temples of Rome. That was the moment when she had the idea for her first novel "The Stone City". Not long afterwards she moved to Italy and came to live in the Roman countryside close to the ancient town of Palestrina, which appears in this novel under its Latin name Praeneste. Since then she has written a second novel, "Death of an Artist", also set in Ancient Rome, and is now working on a third.
