After witnessing his father's crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin is fired by a single passion: to avenge his father's death by driving the Roman legions from the land of Israel. Consumed by hatred, Daniel leads a dangerous life living with an outlaw band in the hills outside his village, spying and plotting, impatiently waiting to take revenge.In nearby Capernaum, a rabbi is teaching a different lesson. Time and again Daniel is drawn to the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, only to turn away, disappointed and confused by Jesus' lack of action in opposing the Romans. Headstrong and devoid of tenderness, Daniel is also heedless of the love and loyalty of those around him, dragging them down his destructive path toward disaster.
Winner of the 1962 Newbery Medal, The Bronze Bow is the story of a boy's tormented journey from a blind, confining hatred to his acceptance and understanding of love.

BORING read of a not boring story.
The narration was terrible.
Not read by this person.
Jim Carter (head butler on Downton Abbey) because he should narrate every book.
Don't waste your money on this audio book. Just make time to read it yourself.
A Changed Heart
My favorite character was Facia becuase she was intuitive in how she responded to all characters and was a link that held the different world views and cultures together.
Good reading of the novel but not a lot of change was given to dramatize and represent the changes in characters and the changing heart of Daiel.
I would take Leah out to dinner. After Jesus frees her to live life to the full- it would be refreshing to watch the childlike wonder as she encountered experiences outside of her former life.
