Read full description of the books:I wish that my review could do justice to this powerful novel - rich with characters that will linger in my memory for a long time. To say this was well written does not do it justice. I read through it rather rapidly the first time, but once I read the “Author’s Notes” at the end I knew I must read it again slowly to savor the pictures painted with amazing skill. As I re-read, I studied the flow of words which revealed the characters with beauty and clarity. Some have written that the story is implausible. I felt like I was viewing amazing events that were not coincidences, but God orchestrating His hand in the lives of these characters. I like a book that challenges me to think. Beyond the beauty of Shella’s words and story are Biblical parallels and thought provoking messages for our own lives. I am anticipating – hoping that this talented author will continue to create historical novels that are beautiful portraits of characters that I wish I actually knew.
