"Hadassah, a young Jewish girl, lives in Jerusalem during its fall to the Roman Empire. After the death of her entire family, Hadassah finds herself as a servant in Rome, living with the wealthy and prominent Valerian family. As a believer in Christ, Hadassah longs to share her faith with the Valerians, but she is afraid of being rejected for her beliefs. Hadassah quickly becomes the personal servant of Julia Valerian, a demanding young girl who seeks temporary pleasures and rebels against the restrictions placed on her by her parents. Instead, Julia engages in a series of troubled relationships, including a love affair with the famous gladiator, Atretes. As Hadassah continues to love and serve Julia, she attracts the attention of the handsome Marcus Valerian. Though she loves Marcus, Hadassah makes the difficult decision to openly follow and profess Christ, even at the risk of being killed in the Roman arena." - Focus On The Family Review

I reeeeeeaaaallllly loved this book. It is not for the innocent to read. It's graphic and beautiful and heart-string tugging and romantic and brutal and a thousand other things. Its the first in a trilogy and all three books are fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone: christian fiction lover or not. Its just a perfectly enthralling/engaging read.
