    A Book Lover

    This book really shows you, what a hard life it was during Roman time, and to be a Christian was even more dangerous. H. Rider Haggared tells the story of a beautiful woman and her hard life during the time after Jesus.

    This one surprised me

    This is a novel from a male author, c.1900, so I thought, O.K, this MIGHT be good but I doubt it. So I got it...and then the other two books in the trilogy, and King Solomon's Mines, and I'm trying to order another of his books. I was actually very impressed, especially considering the era it was written in. O.K, since BN didn't give a summary, I will: a Jew sends his Christian daughter and her husband to the arena (think 1st century) because he thinks they're heretics. However, the wife and her servant manage to escape, and board a ship for Egypt. Along the way the woman gives birth to her baby girl, dying shortly after. Meanwhile, the ship goes down but the servant manages to get to the shore with the girl. (And that's just the prologue!) Anyway, Miriam (the daughter) grows up in some kind of all-male religious community (they are all called her uncles) except for a companion who is found for her. As they get older he falls in love with her and is kind of the fanatically jealous type, which means that a Roman tribune who enters the story causes quite a bit of friction. (And murder attempts) Anyway, without going into any more detail or giving away the important points, I'll stop by saying that this book was really well written, and one that I'll probably read again.
