Nissa is quick tongued woman with no prospects for marriage, with troubled parents and a blind brother. But Nissa has a secret, that she cannot tell, because her family relies on her to support them.
Longinus is a Roman Centurion tasked with finding the thief known as Mouse, with his father's sword at stake he is determined to find Mouse no matter what.
But when a Jewish teacher heals Nissa's brother, the miracle that was supposed to bring much joy only brings hardship.
Nissa and Longinus must decide where their loyalties ultimately lie.
An engaging and compelling tale, rich in detail and characters. I really liked how the story's timeline came together around Jesus' preaching and life.
I liked the characters and the way that they interacted, I really liked Longinus and learning more about him and his past and what he went through to bring him to where he was. I also really admired Nissa, she was very different from other women of her time, but she was string and she did what had to do.
Overall, this was an novel that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I think I may have found a new biblical fiction favorite author. This was a very well written, poignant read. Definitely one I'd recommend.
