(From the publisher):
Tells the story of Harmonia, the priestess and guardian of the Poseidonian relics, as she faces the increasing power of the Lucanian conquerers and the disintegration of her people.
"The Gate to the Sea is always the way to freedom." Throughout this evocative presentation of the haunted landscape of the fourth century B.C., the arched Gate stands as a symbol of hope for the future as well as the memory of a past when the Poseidonian colonists had been free and the famous roses had blossomed gaily in the churchyards of their walled city. To bring the carved wooden figure of Hera from the tunble-down temple shrine so that it might bless the Poseidonian exile and a new settlement, required courage and devotion in the face of a barbarian enemy and treacherous fellow countrymen.
