Surprisingly this is the first book that I have read by Ms. Higley, even though I have a couple of her other titles sitting on my shelf, and now I know why she has so many loyal fans. This book was so well researched and I loved how she wove what the secular world knows of the time period into what was going on at the same time as Biblical events.
Daria is a woman who is privilaged with learning and fluent in multiple languages which was strange for a woman of her times. Daria struggles to find her place in Ephesus, with a merchant called Lucas, but her life is forever changed when she meets the apostle Paul and the followers of The Way.
Overall, a very well written book, and I love how much research was put into the book, and the story moved steadily. The characters were interesting, and I loved seeing Ephesus from Daria's point of view, like seeing another side of history. A grand adventure, set in Biblical times!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
