The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 meant death for most of the Roman citizens living in Pompeii.
But some people must have survived, and Christina Balit has used this as the starting-point for her story.
It tells of Tranio, an actor's son, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter, who witness the destruction of their beloved city.
