A touching and sweet book, full of interesting characters. It shows the love and protection God gives to those who serve Him and "that all things work together for good for them who love God and are called according to His purpose".Was this review helpful?

This book is one of my favorites. I think that it is well written and one of the sweetest love stories I have ever read. If you love history and romance this is for you. The romance between Miriam and Marcus is honorable and squeeky clean. Just what it should be. The level of detail is very good without being boring. Read this if you love Charlotte Bronte or Jane Austen.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Pearl Maiden brings to life a period of time which I have otherwise found dull. It reconstructs a clear view of the siege on the city of Jerusalem, while keeping hold of your interest, and intriguing you with its wonderful combination of characters. The book will be enjoyed more by young female readers, but will entertain most. I give this book five stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful?
