The Unwelcome Stranger by Valerie Cullers (Book Review #652)

The unwelcome stranger is a religious fiction novella set in the fourth century about the time which Constantine comes to invade Italy. The historical fiction is about Livia Arvum, who is a grieving widow and meets Lucius, who is hasting to deliver news about Constantine. The meet-cute becomes a tangled affair that takes you on a journey of which, prevents you from putting the book down.

The literature contains plenty of history, romance, and tragedy. It enlightens and introduces you to a time frame where things were quite different. Livia’s character is fascinating to read. As a woman, her feelings and thoughts are well admired.


We all encounter unpredicted or unwelcome strangers in our life. How we deal with this occurrence or situation is what makes the difference.


The pace of the story is steady, and the author manages to describe a well historically accurate tale based on actual events which occurred at the time. I believe anyone interested in reading historical fiction, romance, and classic stories, would find this tale a delightful read.
