“Forward” section: “White Stones of Pompeii” is a historical fiction novel that takes place during one of the most explosive and extraordinary times in human history – the mid-Roman Empire during the period of the First Century A.D.

“Beginning in the mid-60’s A.D., this dramatic story focuses on a well-traveled, prominent architect and builder, the self-assured Architekton, his family, and household members, who struggle to keep their identity hidden as Jewish-Christians under the despotic Roman rule. Their migration from Jerusalem to Corinth, Pompeii, and Asia Minor will unravel their privileged life.” (“Forward” section assisted by Erik Bork, screen writer and consultant.)

It is at this time in Pompeii that Mt. Vesuvius erupts in 79 A.D. An introduction to the narrative provides a startling glimpse into the history, culture, and religious features of this era. Ms. Stenstrom ‘s historical fiction narrative features forty descriptive chapter titles.
