Theirs was a love destined to be -- torn apart by the wrath of Vesuvius
Pompeii, AD 79
David and Sera are soul mates meant to be together, if only their bumbling guardian angels could do their job right...
First united in Pompeii as a privileged merchant's daughter and a slave gladiator, their young love is cut short when Vesuvius unexpectedly erupts. After several botched attempts, their angels get one final chance to bring the couple together and personally escort them back to war-torn Italy, nearly two thousand years later.
Sera is now an archeologist excavating the ruins of Pompeii. David is an American soldier masquerading as an Italian, sent to spy on the Germans camped near the ruins. With the help of their earth-bound angels, they soon find each other again as they excavate the ruins.
But will deception, the horrors of war, and the forgotten tragedy of their past lives, prevent them from unearthing the love of a lifetime?
"I thoroughly enjoyed this enchanting story that includes gladiators, nazis, archeologists, and angels. Think of it as "From Here to Eternity" meets "It's A Wonderful Life." I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to kick back and just enjoy."
"Out of the Ashes and into your heart; this imaginative and emotional novel by Lori Dillon will have you wanting to go back in time."
