Publisher's Summary

When her father and sister are killed, a distant relative invites Salome and her mother to live with his family in Jerusalem. Quickly betrothed to a pagan prince half her age, Salome questions God's plan. But when she suddenly finds herself being crowned queen of Judea, she learns that a woman committed to God can change the world. 

Born in the small village of Modein, a town made famous by the warrior Maccabees, Salome Alexandra knows better than to harbor grand dreams for her future. She pales in comparison to her beautiful older sister, and though she learns to read at an early age, girls are not valued for their intellectual ability. But when her father and sister are killed, John Hyrcanus, a distant relative, invites Salome and her mother to live with his family in Jerusalem, where her thirst for knowledge is noticed and indulged. 

When her guardian betroths her to a pagan prince, she questions HaShem's plan. When Hyrcanus finally marries her to a boy half her age, she questions her guardian's sanity. But though Salome spends much of her life as a pawn ordered about by powerful men, she learns that a woman committed to HaShem can change the world.

I Enjoyed it

it was a great story line. The performance was excellent. I wish there was more distinction of voices. It would help if a man reads the Mans part only to distinguish, the characters in the story.

I expected it to be very interesting

It was confusing and did not hold my attention. Good premise but... they did not make it grow. It seemed very busy and seemed to be shuffling around a bit.

Rich in Bibical Truth

The diligence in searching scriptures as well as Bibial History wove together a very thought provoking book. The narration was very well done.
