In the twilight of the Roman Empire, a sculptor struggles to keep an 800-year dream alive while honoring the love of his life and raising his adopted son. Part I of the epic five-part Idolatry series, the story of a wealthy young heir and a devout Christian girl who find themselves at the heart of a 2,400-year struggle for the soul of Western Civilization.More
"Beautifully written, on the order of Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth, with the historical insight of James Michener, it brings to life a time of great thought, great art, and its clash with religious fanaticism. Cordair writes with a poet's sense of scene and nuance and gives us a great deal of insight into the mind of a sculptor." (Alan Nitikman)

Food for the soul

Great book, great narration
Mr. Field's voice is a pleasure to listen to. He changed his voice for a few characters, in appropriate spots, for clarity and they weren't overdone. (This can be a problem with some narrators.)
The story was excellent and had me eager for Book 2 to be done!
