In a time of turmoil, one woman will search for love and peace--and find it where she never expected.
Tugged this way and that by fate's indifferent hand, Claudia's life is adrift--until she meets Lucius Pontius Pilate and becomes his wife. When they move to the troublesome territory of Judea, she does what she has always done: makes the best of it. But unrest is brewing and Claudia will soon find herself and her beloved husband embroiled in controversy and rebellion. Might she find hope in the mysterious Jewish Rabbi everyone seems to be talking about? Let this epic story whisk you through marbled palaces, dusty marketplaces, and idyllic Italian villas as you follow the unlikely path of a woman who warrants only a passing mention in one of the Gospel accounts, but whose story, as told by Diana Wallis Taylor, is one worthy of legend. "A stunning and powerful novel of controversy, romance, and rebellion. Meticulous research, drama, and passion hold readers to the page in this exquisite tale of inspiration and intrigue."--Karen O'Connor, author of When God Answers Your Prayers: Stories of How God Comes Through in the Nick of Time "Diana Wallis Taylor takes the reader into the very heart and soul of an obscure New Testament woman whose few but compelling words have captivated readers for centuries. Inspiring and imaginative."--Susan Meissner, author of The Girl in the Glass Diana Wallis Taylor is the author of the novels Journey to the Well, Martha, and Mary Magdalene and lives in California.
