Subject: Kandane, slave of a coppersmith, has Gold as his god, but despite various sensual adventures, he winds up at Qumran & aids in the burying of the scrolls. Characters include Roman soldiers, Jewish zealots & Christian converts. ---- The jacket blurb says: Here, set against the sensual decadence of a pagan world, is the story of a slave who found the key to the sacred treasure of the copper scrolls.It is also the story of the two very different women in his life. One a noblewoman with the soul of a harlot, who would do anything he asked if he would share his secret. The other a warm-blooded Christian convert who would be his forever if he would forget the greatest riches ever known to man. (courtesy of Kathy Rheman, Forest Books and Maps)
