It is named after the Sabines, an ancient people that were in Latium before Rome was founded.
The legend says that Romans abducted Sabine women to populate the newbuilt town, but more realistic studies found many relationships between the two peoples, especially regarding religion and mythology. Many Sabine deities and cults found in fact a development in Rome, and many areas of the town (like the Quirinale) were once Sabine centers.
The area is today a tourist destination, with plenty of interesting medieval villages, and is perhaps more famous for its olive oil production.
Told in the same format as its predessor, Sabine's Notebook is filled with her delicately macabre drawings and notations, the notebook adds a darker element of visual intrigue to their complex and mysterious world.
As the remarkable fates of Griffin and Sabine are gradually revealed, we are introduced to Matthew and Isabella, long-distance lovers who find themselves entwined not only in each other's lives, but also in a perilous and alluring intrigue.
Awash with gorgeous artwork, the mystery of Griffin Moss and Sabine Strohem now entwines Matthew Sedon, an archaeologist steeped in Egyptian antiquity, and Isabella de Reims, a student in Paris whose vision holds the key to a new reality.
