Connie Jagodzinski’s historical novel, Caesar’s Cousin, is available on Amazon.com.
Caesar’s Cousin is based upon actual events that occurred in the 3rd century, A.D. While Rome concentrates on subduing the Gauls in the western provinces, trouble brews unnoticed in the east. Virtually landlocked Goths build a fleet on the Black Sea and sail down into the Mediterranean Sea. They capture Rome’s critical islands of Crete, Rhodes and Cyprus. Without the grain and foodstuffs on the ships that must pass through these ports from Egypt and the fertile eastern lands, Rome will starve.
