“Not what I was expecting but in a good way!
I was asked to give an honest opinion after reading. We’ve all heard the stories of Jesus & the early church. I think this story helps to put the struggle into a clearer perception.
The story begins with Amora believing in the Roman gods. Goes thru her journey in what is right and how perception & social standing affect those choices.
How do you handle tragedy, heartache, anger, etc? How does this affect your relationships? Going thru all of these emotions with Amora is eye-opening.
I don’t want to give away too much of the story. This is the first book by this author, and I really enjoyed reading it. It is different from other Christian books that I have read, but in a good way.
The things I would change: there were a few situations that I felt needed more in-depth explanation. Also, at the beginning of a chapter, it would help if time passed was noted. I was still seeing Estaban as a toddler instead of a teenager in later chapters.
Overall, it’s a really good read and makes you think about how Christians survived back then and how that fits into today.”
