About the Book

Two thousand years before Dante, Michelangelo and the Medici of the Renaissance, the extraordinary Etruscans civilized central Italy.

3 generations of the ambitious Porenna-Laris clan
2 powerful rival cities threaten to tear apart this noble family
1 mysterious Flutist guides their journey to the afterlife.

Meanwhile, The Great Prediction heralds doom.

Amidst pestilence, tyranny, deceit and murder, sophisticated Etruria prospers. Magnificent temples, sumptuous dwellings and roads with arched bridges dot the land. Men revere women. Women own property. Couples eat together at banquets wearing fashionable tunics and stylish leather shoes, while the rest of the cosmos goes barefoot. Wealth, wisdom and artistic beauty abound. Opulent tombs provide for eternal contentment. Praise the gods! Glory to the Etruscans!

About the Author

Rosalind Burgundy’s enchantment for the Etruscans’ amazing culture began when she worked with a renowned archeologist in Rome as Technical Illustrator and Curator of Etruscan artifacts. After more than 40 years as educator/lecturer, wife, mother and world traveler, Ms. Burgundy returns to her life-long interest to create a trio of novels on that ancient civilization.

Song of the Flutist, a three generation family epic, and Odyssey of an Etruscan Noblewoman are set in Etruscan Italy, two thousand six hundred years ago. Tuscan Intrigue, a contemporary archeological escapade, takes place in modern Tuscany and Umbria.

Ms. Burgundy divides her time between the Central Sierra in California and Palm Beach Coast in Florida, feasting with family and friends in Etruscan tradition.
