This book takes you back to AD33 after the death and resurrection of Christ. It is a fictional story based on scriptural events and historical facts. The writing is such that it transports you to the dusty streets of Jerusalem and gives you a real understanding of that time. The story follows the lives of Alban, a Roman centurion full of ambition, and Leah, a handmaiden to Pilate's wife; both trying to find answers for different people and for different reasons. Alban has fixed his eyes on Leah because although she is a handmaiden she is also the niece of Pilate and a union with her could advance his status greatly. All he has to do to secure Leah's hand in marriage is find the answers that Pilate needs... what could possibly go wrong?
