Who might she have been? What are the details of her story? These uestions have taunted historians and chroniclers for centuries but today serve an additional purpose as they are the basis and inspiration behind Stephanie Thornton's The Secret HistoryBeneath Thornton's pen the Byzantine Empire comes alive the dark depravity of life on her streets

But this is a story that beats all stories of that type in my opinion When we look at a character like Theodora what she had to overcome to rise so far our hardships in life seem to pale in comparisonIt's a rare treat to read a novel that is
