"A thousand years before Marco Polo, a young woman from Rome makes the journey along the Silk Road to China; her name is Mariana, and she is a skilled jeweller who also posses the gift of healing.....; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; It is this gift, given by the god Apollo, that moves the Chinese ambassador to kidnap her. The despairing Mariana finds herself taken by ship, horse, camel and foot across a vast area of the ancient world: from the sophisticated Rome of Marcus Aurelius, across northern Mesopotamia to the haunted ruins of Babylon; through Samarkand, the Tarim Basin, to the Taklamakan desert, and at last, after many dangerous encounters, to a China threatened by civil war, and a prince only Mariana can save. In the course of her long journey, Mariana discovers her own strength and wisdom, and moves from hatred to reluctant respect and finally to an abiding love for her captor, the Ambassador Paulus. She learns in time to understand the gift of healing given her by the power of Apollo. At last the road leads her back to Rome and a final, surprising happiness.... (435-noto)
