(From the publisher):
It was an age when muses and fates roamed the earth, when the world was new and all things seemed to be happening for the first time. It was five hundred years before the birth of Christ. The Golden Age of Greece was ending. War would soon destroy the land of Hellas.
In this ancient setting of decline and fall a slave girl named Auria begins her ascension to freedom and self-discovery. She rescues a child that has been put out to die, and they flee to the mountains. As Auria moves deeper into the interior, she finds the strength and courage that she needs. This anabasis, her rise to liberation, is an enchanting passage into her inner world.
