Livias Legacy, a true story, reads like a thrilling novel. It tells about a harrowing flight from Russian armies, an illicit border crossing into West Germany, a dangerous ocean voyage to Canada, and adapting to life in a new land. Several times in her life, Livia lost her home and most of her possessions and had to start all over. My mother, Livia, lost her first love, struggled in an unhappy marriage, and eventually, had to become the breadwinner of her family. During this time, she suffered from angina and, later, Parkinsons disease. How she overcame tremendous problems will be an inspiration to all who read this book. Much of the information came from a memoir handwritten in German by Lydia, Livias sister. I knew that this story was worth passing on and added details from my own memory and imagination.

The Women Who Founded Christianity A Trilogy Volume 1 Hannah and Miriam by David Linwood An historical novel of a Judaean family during the reign of Augustus Caesar. Chapters 1 5 Hannah is a skilled physician and surgeon who maintains a clinic at her home. Her daughter, Miriam, is apprenticed to Hannah, learning the medical arts, and apothecary skills. Hannahs husband, Joachim, is a timber merchant. Because of the incursion of self-serving warlords and bandits in the countryside, Joachim must constantly defend his ox trains while hauling the timbers to market. Joachim and the Roman Tribune Cornelius join forces to ambush the principal, notorious bandit Judas ben Hezekiah. After the ambush, Miriam performs difficult surgeries in the field, and saves the life of a severely wounded friend. Chapters 6 11 Miriam reveals to Hannah, that she has been visited by the Angel Gabriel. The angel has announced that Miriam will give birth to a son, Joshua, and that he will be an exceptional child, dedicated to a great purpose. When Joachim is informed by Hannah of the Annunciation of Gabriel, he immediately warns Hannah that Miriam is in great danger. Unscrupulous competitors of Joachim in Sepphoris will bring the ultra-orthodox authorities down on Miriams head if she reveals that she is with child, and not lawfully betrothed or married. The authorities will laugh her to scorn if she reveals her visitation by Gabriel. They will have her flogged for adultery, and sent to a madhouse or even stoned. To protect his daughter, Joachim suggests that a long-time business associate of his, Yosef of Nazareth, a carpenter and house builder, might be interested in a betrothal. Miriam is apprised of her fathers plan, and agrees to withhold judgment until she has had a chance to meet Yosef and see what kind of person he is. Joachim, Hannah and Miriam travel to Nazareth under the pretext of visiting Yosefs medicinal herb garden. The garden belonged to Yosefs wife, Deborah, who died in childbirth. Yosef welcomes them to his home. He reveals that he has been visited in a special dream, by the Angel Gabriel, who told him that Joachim and Hannah and Miriam would be coming to visit, and they would ask him to consider a betrothal with Miriam. Miriam has been watching Yosef closely since they arrived at his house. She is greatly drawn to him, both physically as a mature, handsome man, and also as a very spiritual person. She announces that she agrees to be betrothed and married to Yosef, if he is willing. Yosef is likewise greatly attracted to the young, beautiful girl, Miriam, and admits he has been so very lonely since his Deborah died three years previously. He agrees to a betrothal which is a lawful trial marriage that includes the possibility of children and that will protect Miriam from the ultra-orthodox authorities. Yosef, with Miriam and her parents, visits Rabbi Shmuel ben Zeroah in Nazareth, to be betrothed. Chapters 12 16 Yosef with Miriam, and Joachim with Hannah, and their other children, Chavah and Yeshai, travel to Jerusalem for the Passover Holiday. Miriam and Joseph are wedded in Jerusalem. Chapters 16 23 King Herod has begun to seize every prominent man in the cities all through Judaea. He has not harmed them but has imprisoned them. None of the men has opposed Herod in any way. The economy of Judaea becomes greatly depressed and the flow of taxes to Rome is reduced to a mere trickle of gold. Herod does not care he is dying. He knows th

Rome is a subject of endless fascination, and in this new biography of the infamous Empress Livia, Matthew Dennison brings to life a woman long believed to be one of the most feared villainesses of history. Second wife of the emperor Augustus, mother of his successor Tiberius, grandmother of Claudius and great grandmother of Caligula, the empress Livia lived close to the center of Roman political power for eight turbulent decades. Her life spanned the years of Rome's transformation from Republic to Empire, and witnessed both its triumphs under the rule of Augustus and its lapse into instability under his dysfunctional successor. Livia was given the honorific title Augusta in her husband's will, and was posthumously deified by the emperor Claudius—but posterity would prove less respectful. The Roman historian Tacitus anathematized her as "malevolent" and a "feminine bully" and inspired Robert Graves's celebrated twentieth-century depiction of Livia in I, Claudius as the quintessence of the scheming matriarch, poisoning her relatives one by one to smooth her son's path to the imperial throne. Livia, Empress of Rome rescues the historical Livia from the crude caricature of popular myth to paint an elegant and richly textured portrait. In this rigorously researched biography, Dennison weighs the evidence found in contemporary sources to present a more nuanced assessment. Livia's true "crime," he reveals, was not murder but the exercise of power. The Livia who emerges here is a complex, courageous and gifted woman, and one of the most fascinating and perplexing figures of the ancient world.
