Dying for Rome: Lucretia's Tale retells the historic story of the tragic girl whose death inspired the men of Rome to rise up against a tyrant king and establish the Roman Republic. Was she a victim or a champion? A pawn in political schemes or the catalyst for rebellion? In this vivid short story, Lucretia's character is explored to reveal a tender portrait of a young girl misused by men who transforms into a woman with a passion for justice. Dying for Rome: Lucretia's Tale opens Short Tales of Ancient Rome, a new Elisabeth Storrs' short story collection investigating the legends and history of Rome from a fresh perspective. Those who have read Storrs' two novels, The Wedding Shroud and The Golden Dice in the Tales of Ancient Rome series can once again delve into the world of early Rome, while those unfamiliar with her work will enjoy discovering her compelling portrayal of the lives of women of the ancient past.The first book in the Tales of Ancient Rome series, The Wedding Shroud, was judged runner-up in the 2012 international Sharp Writ Book Awards for general fiction, and was a finalist in the 2013 Kindle Book Review Best Kindle Book of the Year in literary fiction. The Golden Dice was named as one of the top memorable reads of 2013 by Sarah Johnson, the reviews editor for Historical Novels Review. The third volume, Call to Juno, is currently being written.

3.5 Once there was Lucretia
And if you don't know the ending to that story, then I really don't know what to say. Storr's retelling of Lucretia and the fall of the Empire that precedes the Republic isn't anything really new, though it's interesting to see it from the female point of view.
