Adam Grant is a man with a troubled mind in an otherwise perfect marriage. A gifted architect with a passion for recreating monuments from the ancient world, he is searching for his true identity. As his past calls to him and he seeks to embrace it and learn the truth, inevitably, the lovely Tyra becomes drawn into the mystery. In an attempt to understand his torment and discover if, as she suspects, they both knew each other in a different time, Tyra must trust the intuition of their mutual friend, healer and spiritualist, and embark on an emotional and uncertain journey, 2,000 years into the past, to the glory that was Rome. As a woman of the aristocracy whose father has high political aspirations, she falls irretrievably in love with Rome's new champion gladiator, but their class differences and the pain and suffering of others which brought them together, also threaten to tear them apart. When their secrecy is compromised and they must face up to a life apart, for the state will not permit their union, their lives end in different but equally tragic circumstances as they vow to meet again in another time. In the sun-baked sands of the arena, she must witness, for the last time, the bloody spectacle of the gladiatorial games and, ultimately, the defeat and execution of the man who would, one day, in the far-distant future, become her husband.
