Summary (From the publisher):

Fourteen-year-old Phano dreams of a quiet life as a respectable housewife in ancient Athens. She is already an accomplished weaver, and she wants to learn more of the skills necessary for her future: how to make Egyptian honey cakes, or a love potion, or a purge to use when the slaves are ill. Quiet respectability, though, may be more than Phano can hope for. Her fatherís wife, whom Phano calls Mama, was once a courtesan. Though Phano loves her dearly, Mama is far more willful than a proper Athenian matron. And Mama has a mortal enemy, a man named Phrynion, who claims that Phano is not a free citizen but a slave who belongs to him. What will happen to Phano if he can prove she is really his slave? When Phano meets Theo, the handsome eldest son of a respectable family, she falls in love. But how can she hope to marry Theo with Phrynionís threats hanging over her, with their familyís lack of position, with no money for a dowry?
