Publisher's Summary

Three-time Christy Award winner Davis Bunn collaborates with Janette Oke to evoke the tumult of first-century Judea in the wake of Christ’s crucifixion.

Although she prefers service in Pontius Pilate’s palace to a loveless marriage, Leah is betrothed to a Roman centurion. Before he can have Leah, however, he must go on a secret mission. But when a rabbi’s missing body sends Leah and Alban after the same answers, what they discover could change all they hold dear.

    "A Good Read "

    This book brought the Biblical account of the impact on the lives of ordinary people after the death of Christ Jesus in a more personal way.
    The characters help the reader perceive the distress and conflicts real people faced in light of the fact Jesus had conquered death.

    I really appreciated the writer acquaintance with the periods politics and religious dynamics. The reader's interpretive skills also added to.my listening pleasure.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed it!"

    The English accent of the narrator was a bit off for the setting, but I loved the story.

    "A beautiful story!"

    The ending was somewhat predictable but the journey to the end was very satisfying. There were some inaccuracies of the bible but I still enjoyed it!
    The narrator did an amazing job.

    "inspiring"

    I loved this book the it was a great mix of intrigued and suspense all folded in with a beautiful love story between two strangers that come together on their quest to find Jesus, and experience Christ's pure love. A great book for believers to read or for some one that is new to or questioning their faith.

    "Very well done and researched."

    I was a little surprised to hear a British accent, and it took me awhile to get used to it, but once I could make that a background issue, it was very well done, very well-researched , and a delightful and heart moving story.
