Short synopsis:
Classics buffs and faith-based readers alike will enjoy this novel, which mingles Greek and Jewish traditions in the pre-Christian world. Drawing on her own experience as a journalist, Peace Corps volunteer, and interpreter, the writer depicts a world as full of interfaith conflict and difficult choices as our own. Along with familiar Biblical characters, readers will find stories of a slave turned freedman, a Greek orphan adopted into Judaism, and two bittersweet love stories.
Amazon review quotes:
“Historical fiction at its best! The author explores the politics, religion, and culture that provide structure in the volatile world at the time of Christ. … [The story] rings with truth and clarity.” – P.M. Newman
“A riveting tale of culture, religion, and character.” – MZ
Editing, cover design, formatting, and e-book conversion were done by David and Leonore Dvorkin of DLD Books Editing and Self-Publishing Services: http://www.dldbooks.com/

  1. Thanks so much, Patty. I certainly agree with your very positive assessment of this book. Folks, as you can see from the above, while the print book is $14.95, the e-book, from either Amazon or Smashwords, is just $4.99, a bargain. So don’t miss this one! Personally, I think it would make a great movie, too. I hope someone picks it up for that purpose. Speaking of books made into movies: Another of the books that we (DLD Books) have edited is Christine McDonald’s CRY PURPLE. It’s her amazing, riveting autobiography about her 17 years as a street-corner prostitute and crack cocaine addict before she recovered from all that (and also went blind). She now does a lot of public speaking on social justice issues. CRY PURPLE is being filmed in Kansas City, MO this spring. That’s where she walked the streets. Her website, with details about her two books, is http://www.dldbooks.com/cmcdonald/ – Leonore
