    Interesting.

    I have often wondered about Peters wife and I found this book very interesting. Especially the ending and some facts of history. It had to be an interesting time to be alive and entertain the LORD JESUS in your home, at your table, witness the miracles and just plain enjoy the MASTER's presence! I highly recommend this book and should you buy I hope you allow it to help you always to stand firm in your faith.

    What if Simon Peter had a wife and child?

    What if the disciples had families? Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us that Jesus healed Simon Peter's mother-in-law, therefore; he had a wife. Church history tells us that Peter and his wife were crucified together in Rome. Ms. Sagan has taken these passages and histories to fashion a woman called Johanna as the wife of Simon. Johanna has grown up with Simon and is ecstatic when their fathers come to an agreement on a bridal contract. At first the marriage is wonderful but then troubles develop which cause bitterness and withdrawal. Soon Simon starts to follow Jesus leaving the fishing business to be managed by his partner. Johanna's bitterness grows as she feels left out and partially abandoned by Simon. Her interactions with Jesus help her to come to terms with God. Ms. Sagan has portrayed 1st Century Capernaum in a detailed and believable manner as she did in "Rebecca Redeemed". This second book about women in the time of Jesus shows an eternal century-crossing side of women. Like women today Johanna has joys and troubles and when in trouble, she need proof that the solutions will work. She is also stubborn and needs proof that her beliefs will support her in the long run. Although she supports her husband, she wants to know that he still loves her, honours her, and will take care of her as well as the family. This novella has many facets that make it enjoyable as well as thoughtful.
