This unique novel is difficult for me to assess. It's thoroughly researched and fully immerses the reader in the world of John the Baptist and, in alternating chapters, the world of the court of Herod & Herodias, though of course from the author's own perspective since so little is really known objectively about John. The author takes spirituality very seriously, though not in an orthodox Christian sense. I appreciated it more than I enjoyed it.
