A tale for our times-both cautionary and uplifting-"Miriam: Repentance and Redemption in Rome" is the story of what it means to love and to sacrifice. Author Cheryl Dickow shines as she expertly weaves the lives of such saints as Padre Pio and Edith Stein into the story of Miriam, a Mossad agent. The reader is taken on an unforgettable journey that invites everyone to explore his or her own beliefs and attitudes in light of the Truth of Christ.
Join agents as they seek to accomplish their tasks for the Four Horsemen Mission. See what happens when the United States passes the ultimate in pro-abortion legislation. Contemplate the seemingly impossible as the veil between heaven and earth is pulled aside in a moment that will change the course of humanity.
Dickow brilliantly uses the Jewish roots of Christianity to draw the past into the present. Her knowledge of both faiths is skillfully used in this cleverly crafted work of fiction which will leave the reader satisfied and yet wanting more!
What was said about Dickow's first book aptly applies to this, her second, in which she solidifies her place as an author of women's inspirational

About the Author
Miriam is somewhat of a sequel to my first work of fiction Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage�although one needn�t have read Elizabeth to read Miriam (but I certainly hope that if you didn�t, this will entice you to do so!). It is a long time in the making. Maybe because God had to use a number of people to nudge me along and show me that it was time to write this book. These people include friends like Pam, Valerie, Nancy, Gerri, Chris, Amy, and Annette and also some interesting �signs� from the Almighty Himself; but nothing would be possible if it weren�t for my husband John who has far greater confidence in me than I could ever have in myself. I also need to thank Andrea for her immense help in gathering information about the works of Edith Stein.
Ultimately, my prayer is that every reader of Miriam: Repentance and Redemption in Rome is blessed by the work. I certainly was in listening to God and writing it for you!
The Scripture quotes I used within this work are taken from either The Navarre Bible or Saint Joseph Edition of the New American Bible (I love both!). Other quotes I used came from the following works that I have read over the years and have cherished: The Big Book of Christian Mysticism by Carl McColman; Andersen�s Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen; Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas; The Divine Comedy by Dante; Edith Stein: An Autobiography; The Glory Within by Corey Russell; The Journey by Billy Graham; The Privilege of Being a Woman by Alice von Hildebrand.
