Summary

Chava, the Jewish daughter of a royal tutor, vowed to be faithful to her childhood friend Queen Cleopatra. But after they argue, Chava is ripped from her family and her privileged life and sold into slavery. When she finds herself alone in Rome, she must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God's will.

New York Times best-selling author's newest biblical-era series.

Five decades before the birth of Christ, Chava, daughter of the royal tutor, grows up with Urbi, a princess in Alexandria's royal palace. When Urbi becomes Queen Cleopatra, Chava vows to be a faithful friend no matter what - but after she and Cleopatra have an argument, she finds herself imprisoned and sold into slavery. Torn from her family, her community, and her elevated place in Alexandrian society, Chava finds herself cast off and alone in Rome. Forced to learn difficult lessons, she struggles to trust a promise HaShem has given her. After experiencing the best and worst of Roman society, Chava must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God's will for her life.

Good but disappointed

I was excited to read this book however the more I listen the more I had felt i was reading a biography rather than a story. The most disappointing aspect was you wait through the whole story to see her go back to be married and all it says is we escaped and went to meet them . The End. Really i did like the wrap around of Gods word coming to full circle and answering prayers Amen but the ending was bad its like staying awake for a good movie that strings you along and it ends suddenly and you are left disappointed..

Different View of History

This book takes you through an array of Egyptian, Roman, and to some extent Judean History. This is a story of trust, humility, friendship, betrayal, courage, defeat, human nature, love, and faith. It is a story of trial and triumph for those high-born, and those in the lowest rungs of society.

Dull!

The overall story is so trite and boring!! That a slave, AND a woman!, at this time in history, would rise so high that she would “counsel” Agrippa and Octavian? Really?! And to survive slavery un-scathed, and with so much time on her hands that she would be able to purchase a book and study becoming a midwife? The narrator made the whole story difficult to listen to and the characters sound like air-headed dunces. I would not recommend this book.

An okay story with an okay narrator.

Not overly impressed, skipped a lot of dark detail. Basically a story of cleopatra and politics. Narrator takes a breath and pauses at the weirdest times as if she is short of breath or trying to find her place or something. I would have like more Christian aspect and less idolatry and cruelty.
