I am Livia

I Am Livia - Phyllis T. Smith

I am Livia is a fictionialized account of Livia Drusilla who became the wife of Octavianus, known most commonly as the first Emperor of Rome, Augustus. The book follows her from when she was 14 and overheard her father plotting to murder Julius Caesar. 


Her path to becoming the first lady of Rome, so to speak, was an interesting story that I was not familiar with and while it was fiction, I enjoyed learning about what she accomplished.
