Subject: Boudicca & Suetonius Paulinus & a treasure of gold. --- dustjacket flap (as adapted by Ann DeVere, Plaza Books): From the back streets of Nero's Rome to the vast haunting fenlands of Celtic Britain, DRUID TIME takes the reader on a quest for a fabled treasure. It tells the story of Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, Governor of Britain, a Roman General, born into a humble family who rises to fame, to command armies, who has an affair with Nero's mother, Agrippina. Agrippina entangles him in a plot to uncover the gold of Celtic Queen Boudicca..( note-Actually, I take exception to this: she was Pict, and probably an ancestor of mine.) .This plot leads him to a confrontation "more nightmarish than any in the bloody history of Rome's conquests." The novel evokes the Rome of the Caesars, and conjures up the world of the Druids and Celtic Britain. "It is an authentic retelling of actual historical events in all their drama and excitement, but brought to life through the imaginative dimension of a novelist's feeling for the men and women who experienced them, who loved and lived through one of Rome's most turbulent times."
