Why read it?

1 author picked The History of the Vestal Virgins of Rome as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

When I wrote, Vestal Virgin—suspense in ancient Rome, this was the only book I found specifically about the Vestals. Written in 1934, it covers topics including: religious duties, civil duties, dress, and discipline. The Virgins were sworn to chastity on penalty of death, understanding their duties and how they were disciplined was essential to my story. I couldn’t have written my historical novel without help from this book.

From Suzanne's list on ancient Rome at the time of Nero.
