Three-time Christy Award winner Davis Bunn collaborates with Janette Oke to evoke the tumult of first-century Judea in the wake of Christ’s crucifixion.
Although she prefers service in Pontius Pilate’s palace to a loveless marriage, Leah is betrothed to a Roman centurion. Before he can have Leah, however, he must go on a secret mission. But when a rabbi’s missing body sends Leah and Alban after the same answers, what they discover could change all they hold dear.
"Fans of these popular authors will love their joint effort imagining and animating the context of Christianity's birth." (Publishers Weekly)

The story first and foremost. The authors wrote a great series. The narrator was great. Audible needs to record the other two books.
Both Leah and the Centurion. We can only assume from what little is said about this centurion in Matthew 8:5-10 and Luke 7:6-10 that he was a good man of great faith who had more to do with Christ than we are told in those short verses. I think he is a wonderful character on which to base a story about early Christianity and that this is a wonderful story.
Everything. I don't nitpick the narrator when I listen to a story. I'm sure there are other listeners who could critique the narrator better than I, but to me, she did a great job.
Many. I was especially moved when I first realized that the centurion in this story was the very one mentioned in Matthew and Luke.
People, you need to hear this book. With only 69 ratings, even though they are very good ratings, it is no wonder that Audible has not recorded the other two books in this series. Repent so I can listen to those other two books!
