Wife to Chuza, King Herod's chief steward, Joanna lives a life of luxury in the city of Sepphoris, the jewel of the Galilee. Yet not even the finest doctors can restore health to her lungs, which have ailed her since childhood. But Joanna has heard talk of a local healer, and the rumors intrigue her. She has only once seen this Jesus of Nazareth from a distance, thronged by mobs proclaiming his latest miracle. His mother is Joanna's own cousin Mary, whose family disowned Joanna for forsaking Jewish law in favor of Roman customs. Intending to ask her estranged cousin to arrange a meeting with her son, Joanna sets off on the dusty road to Nazareth.

Jesus indeed has the power to heal Joanna's body, but it is her soul that blossoms through her friendship with Mary, and as one of Jesus' disciples. But as word of Jesus' miracles reach Herod's court and the ruler becomes increasingly wary of his fame among the people, intrigue, treachery, and murder cast shadows onto Joanna's new path, changing her life forever.

    " This is such a moving book. It really helps that my husband and I read the bible and love it but even if I had not it givens great insight into life in biblical times. Elegant writing! "

    " This book was only ok. The writing was bad, but it was a good idea. I almost stopped reading it halfway through. It's the author's first novel, and you can totally tell! Her sentences don't always go together well, and there isn't much flow. I don't recommend it. "

    " I enjoyed reading Rourke's gentle story of Mary and Joanna, two cousins crossing paths near the end of Mary's son's ministry. In an era shrouded in mystery, any thing is possible, but Rourke's story sounds plausible and makes a meaningful contribution to one's lenten preparation. "

    " Worth the read. Historical fiction on Bible characters, Joanna (wife of Herod's chief steward) and her cousin Mary (Jesus's mom). "
