The Wolf Den
'Vivid, wise and unflinching, this is a triumph' The Times
Sold by her mother. Enslaved in Pompeii's brothel. Determined to survive.
Her name is Amara. Welcome to the Wolf Den... Amara was once a beloved daughter, until her father's death plunged her family into penury.
Now, she is owned by a man she despises and lives as a slave in Pompeii's infamous brothel, her only value the desire she can stir in others. But Amara's spirit is far from broken. Sharp, resourceful and surrounded by women whose humour and dreams she shares, Amara comes to realise that everything in this city has its price.
But how much will her freedom cost? The Wolf Den is the first in a trilogy of novels reimagining the long overlooked lives of women in Pompeii's lupanar.
Perfect for fans of Pat Barker's The Silence of the Girls and Madeline Miller's Circe.
