Publisher's Summary

Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil - facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine's governor to ferret out the truth behind the rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah's mistress, the governor's wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death - and missing body - is causing such furor.

Amazing love story

This is a love story on different levels. That of Christ for the church and mankind for each other. Finally a man for a woman and a woman for a man. Wonderfully crafted.

Any additional comments?

Our 21st century lives and customs are so far removed from life under Roman rule and Jewish life, that these stories give an insight to how it was then and help us to understand the Bible better and that nothing is new under the sun.
