A Triumph for Falvius by Caroline Dale Snedeker

Updated: Dec 18, 2020


G--appropriate for all


This is a thin volume, not really long enough to be considered a novel. But it is a complete story about the relationship between a Roman boy and his Greek slave. I appreciate that the story takes place before Rome's glory days. We get a glimpse into Roman life and culture, but as it is developing into a world superpower.


This is a quick read and provides lessons in compassion and human dignity.


Themes:

  • Ancient history

  • Rome/Roman history

  • Human dignity

  • Compassion

Parental cautions:

  • Slavery

  • Whipping slaves

  • Mention of Roman gods


I have given this book a G rating as all mention of difficult subjects is very mildly discussed.
