She has since been canonized and honored by Christians as one of their most important saints for centuries. Who was this exceptional woman and why could she do what she has done?Around the year 290, Helena was divorced by her husband and sent into exile with her only son, Constantine.

Despite difficult circumstances, including that of being a single mother, she was able to raise an extraordinary son. Constantine became a great and powerful emperor, renowned for granting Christians the freedom of religion and eventually elevating Christianity to the official religion of the Roman Empire. Her contributions to these remarkable achievements are a matter of history, and her influence on Constantine went far beyond her pilgrimage to Judea. In this novel, Helena’s life and her role in history are primarily told from her own perspective.The author has extensively researched the life of Helena and traveled to all the important edifices linked to her name, including the Saint John Lateran and the Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

The translator has a degree in archeology and has been closely involved in the realization of this novel.
