This A.D. Chronicles book imagines the back stories of the ten lepers who are healed by Jesus. It is really a series of separate stories that each leper tells around the dinner fire on the journey to find Jesus. I just got attached to one character's story, and then it was on to another story. The author makes no mention of the rest of the story of the 10 lepers in the New Testament where Jesus tells them to go see the priest to get a "clean bill of health" and only one return to give thanks.

Perfect example of "don't judge a book by its cover" I have an idea who the couple on the front is but the story isn't a love story at all, nor is it about a couple. Good story about 10 lepers who leave the valley where they have been exiled in search of Jesus in hopes of healing for them all. Ending is abrupt, but otherwise a pleasant read.

All ten Lepers from Mak'ob have ventured out to find the Messiah to heal them and thier people. Along the way, they share their life stories And stories of other that have been sricken with Lepresy.

I loved this book. The first few chapters were not that well written, but then the whe story took shape and it was Amazing. All of the stories were unique and heart wrenching. I just can't wait for the next book to come out.

This book was not quite to the quality of some of the earlier books in the series, but still very good. Also, some of the mini-stories were so good that I had hoped that would have just been the whole book, but the stories all seemed to end slightly lacking in a finish. This could have been a series of short stories and it might not have been as frustrating.
This story goes back to the ten lepers that left the Valley of MaKob in the second book. The authors interwieve the characters' backstories in with the present story making for an interesting read about what the lives of the ten lepers, whom Jesus healed, could have been like.

This was a good read as a novel set in the time period of Jesus, but not much more than that. Again, not the deep, educational while being enjoyable book I had hoped for, unlike the first several books, which were fantastic and worth reading several times.
What can I say - it was great. Love the authenticity and the storylines in the Thoenes' books. Interesting accounts of the lepers' lives - something I'd not considered in much detail before now.

good, but an "unfinished" story in that it never took the reader to the "10 Leper" story where only one returns to thank Jesus. I was looking forward to that and it doesn't happen.

This series seems to have lost its steam, what with the changing timelines and characters, but the book itself was sad and good nonetheless.

Good, but rather short, and not as well written as the first few books of this series.
Very atypical for this series, but a very sweet story.
