The Torchlighters Series

Bright young Augustine thinks his mother’s religion is foolishness. With his “superior” intellect to guide him, he sneaks away from home to an important job and a new life of luxury in the city of Rome. When the empire decides to take over one of Milan’s Christian basilicas, Augustine prepares to give the speech of a lifetime to squash the Christians once and for all. With his devout mother and the peaceful Bishop Ambrose on one side and angry, armed soldiers on the other, Augustine discovers he must choose whom he will serve.
