The novel follows the lives of those affected by Jesus.

"Who do men say that I am?"

 

Is Yeshua the Messiah?    Then why won't Yeshua prove himself?   And why does he leave his people to suffer?

From the wilderness of Sinai in the south to Mount Hermon in the north, the question of Yeshua of Nazareth's identity resounds across the ancient land of Israel. Even evil waits to hear the answer. It is in the very air, the storm, and the sea. Zahav, the lonely, unmarried daughter of an old rabbi, waits for the promised Messiah . . . waits for love. Her heart is drawn toward Alexander and his young son, who is ravaged by evil forces. But can their forbidden love endure the trials that will face them?

Susanna and Manaen struggle as they begin their life together. Bitter over an evil act of violence that left him blind, Manaen cannot accept a life of darkness. Will their relationship survive the overwhelming odds?

Can the truth about Yeshua defeat the evil that lurks in the land? (pub blurb via Amazon)
