He is betrothed to his beloved Cornelia who is sent to Tibur on a decision by her uncle. The very next day after Quintus gets involved in an incident with emperor's wife who resides in Baiae, he receives two letters; one from his father who invites him to Rome; and the other from his fiancée who notifies him that she is coming to Rome as well. Quintus sets off to the capital eager to see his loved one, but the shadow of previous incident remains to follow him.
