"It is a tale of mourning, lamentation, and woe that you have told us, rabbi. Not even in the days of our captivity in Babylon were the Jewish people fallen so low. Let us to bed now. These things are too terrible to speak of, until we have laid them before the Lord, and asked his guidance. I wonder not, now, rabbi, that years seem to have rolled over your head since we last met."
The others rose. Mary, as she ...

Overview

Simon was the first to speak.
"It is a tale of mourning, lamentation, and woe that you have told us, rabbi. Not even in the days of our captivity in Babylon were the Jewish people fallen so low. Let us to bed now. These things are too terrible to speak of, until we have laid them before the Lord, and asked his guidance. I wonder not, now, rabbi, that years seem to have rolled over your head since we last met."
The others rose. Mary, as she passed John, laid her hands on his shoulder with a caressing action--which was very rare to her, for she generally behaved to him as to a brother, holding any exhibition of greater affection unmaidenly, until the days of betrothal were ended. The action seemed to recall John from his gloomy thought, and he smiled down at her anxious face; then, when the others went off to their apartments, he went out into the night air and stood for hours, nearly immovable, with his eyes fixed on the stars.

    Henty's best!

    Henty has surpassed himself with this genius piece of work. This story of the fall of Jerusalem to Titus and the Roman Army is magnificent in every aspect and deserves full credit. The words eloquent and flowing. The battle scenes real and exciting. A very well researched book taken directly from Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian, who wintessed the siege himself. Although the speeches sometimes become rather long they are perfect examples of the way one might think in their position. The entire book is graced with stories of courage, love, greed, and God making it the crown of Henty's masterful writing.
