Excerpt from Under the Witches' Moon: A Romantic Tale of Mediaeval Rome
The purple dusk began to weave its phantom veil over the ancient capital of the Caesars and a round blood-red moon was climbing slowly above the misty crests of the Alban Hills, draining the sky of its crimson sunset hues.
The silvery chimes of the Angelus, pealing from churches and convents, from Santa Maria in Trastevere to Santa Maria of the Aventine, began to sing their message of peace into the heart of nature and of man.
