Author Colin C. Murphyabout this book: The Lost Voices - Liber 1 is the first book in an epic trilogy that spans the two decades preceding the destruction of Pompeii. Unlike other books on the subject, The Lost Voices Trilogy is based around the thousands of actual graffiti that real Pompeians left behind. (Ancient Romans were avid graffiti writers.) These included the touching, humorous, crude, romantic, vengeful or philosophical and gave us wonderful insights into the lives of the ordinary people. Here are a few examples:

Our beautiful daughter was born early in the evening on Saturday, August 2.

Atimetus got me pregnant.

My lusty son, with how many women have you f ... d?

Methe, slave of Cominia, from Atella, loves Chrestus. May Pompeian Venus be dear to both of them and may they always live in harmony.

The Lost Voices weaves an engrossing tale around the lives of ordinary people like Publius, a youthful baker who aspires to be a playwright, Cygnia, a beautiful young slave of cruel masters who dreams of escape, Epidius the ruthless moneylender who will stop at nothing to succeed, Prima, the mother who holds a terrible secret in her heart, or Celadus, the famed gladiator who longs for an ordinary life.

Moving, thrilling and engrossing, The Lost Voices will capture your imagination and hold it prisoner until the final page!
