Chloe is the daughter forgotten by her Roman father. When the story opens she is a slave girl in the mountains of Samnium, southern Italy. Her mother was descended from a proud Greek family in Lesbos and had won the admiration of a young Roman centurion. He had married her, but for some strange reason deserted her after two happy years. Chloe is born as her mother dies. Through this fascinating story of Chloe's childhood, and girlhood, we catch glimpses of what it meant to be a slave in the days of Rome's supremacy, of the primitive towns of Samnia and of Roman towns when Chloe tried to escape back to Lesbos; of Rome itself. Chloe's romance with young, sensitive, highborn Roman Aulus, whom unknown she saves from death in the forest, is beautifully told. Once again tragedy threatens tempestuous, defensive Chloe but in the end double "remembrance" comes for the "forgotten daughter."
