If you were looking for a novel there's; Nicholas Wiseman's  Fabiola or John Henry Newman's Callista.  There's also a book by John Mason Neale whose title escapes me.  Despite being novels they give a good view of early Christian life though they may be rather dated.

It may not cover the time frame, but for the western Christian it is a must read IMHO Vita Patrum by St Gregory of Tours translated by Fr Seraphim Rose of Blessed Memory.
