The Roman Mysteries (books)

Has anyone read these books? They are written by an American who lives in England called Caroline Lawrence. They are set in the Roman Empire in what is now Italy about AD 79. They are for children 9-12 years but I think they are fantastic. They have people in it who are Christians and have to hide that they are because it is a forbidden religion.
