Rev. Michael H. Lavery’s Historical Fiction Novel About Soul-Searching Roman Soldier Slated for Exhibit at the 2023 Frankfurt Book Fair

The Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) is one of Europe’s most prestigious book fairs, bringing together publishers from all over the world to network with authors and give recently published writers a chance to showcase their works. Among them is Christian author Rev. Michael H. Lavery. His historical fiction novel “Lucius: A Soldier’s Journey” tells the story of a Roman soldier’s inner turmoil and his discovery of a liberating truth.

“This is the story of a man, tormented from defending the very empire he had grown to find repulsive and unjust. Like his father before him, he searches for an answer he was not sure could be found.”

Every year the Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) attracts thousands of global publishers, content distributors, and authors to network, learn industry insights, and exhibit new books for hundreds of eager readers visiting the exhibits.

The event presents a big opportunity for Christian writers like Rev. Michael Lavery to put their books on display, impress readers with their stories, and also share the powerful message they have within.

In Rev. Lavery’s case, that message is told in “Lucius: A Soldier’s Journey.” In it, Lavery shares a story that combines his passion for creative fiction, knowledge of ancient Roman history, and faith.

The book revolves around the spiritual struggles of soldiers living at the time. It particularly tells the story of Lucius, a distinguished Roman general born from a long line of great military leaders. His family has marched under Rome’s banner in all its wars of conquest.

And yet, his father Antonicus secretly confided in him his inner conflict about his service to the Empire and the conclusions he has reached about its never-ending pursuit for territory. With each expansion, the Empire’s troubles and unrest also expand.

Yet still, his father continued to lead the Empire’s soldiers even unto his death in battle.

The story then follows Lucius, at the senior end of his extensive military career and nowhere close to resolving the same conundrum that plagued his father. Still, a chance reassignment hints towards a final answer.

Visitors to the Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) can learn about this answer when Rev. Michael H. Lavery’s “Lucius: A Soldier’s Journey” goes on display at the ReadersMagnet exhibit. The event will be on October 18-22, 2023, at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, 60327 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Get the book today on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
