description -

A royal love affair that shaped the destiny of the ancient world

The Purple Quest is a masterful recreation of one of the great romantic sagas of the ancient world--the turbulent story of Queen Dido and the founding of Carthage.

With no weapons but courage and a sailor's skills, and no ally but Hera, the lovely Grecian who owed him more than her life, a proud Phoenician prince fights to defend his people from ambitious enemies--and himself from the unwelcome glory of marriage to the legendary Queen Dido.

THE PURPLE QUEST, a novel by Frank G. Slaughter
