“As always, Brooke’s writing is sensuous and poetic in this retelling of Virgil’s classic romance. What emerges is a remarkable portrait of a woman with a will and sense of duty as strong as any man’s, and the complexity of sexual identities and gender roles. Highly recommended.” (From a 5 star Amazon review)

“One gets a clear sense of Dido as a strong accomplished woman. I was fascinated and as always with this author wanted more when I had finished reading it.” (From a Goodreads review)
