Gertrude Atherton (1857 - 1948)

Golden Peacock
Houghton Mifflin, 1936


Spilling out her story in headlong fashion, sixteen-year old Pomponia, niece of the satirist, Horace, investigates the murder of her parents. Has she uncovered a plot against Augustus Caesar which will also threaten her own future? The first Roman Mystery told from a woman's point of view. Set in 20 or 19 BC; Horace, Vergil, Livy, Livia, Julia and Gaius Macaenas appear.
