She is a woman without a name. Chosen by men for her beauty, she refused to bend to their desires. Beaten and sold to a slave trader, she is left to die in a putrid dungeon.
Everything changes when she’s purchased by the Thane of a foreign king and given a Jewish name.
The king needs her to save his kingdom. God calls her to an unimaginable future. Evil wants her for itself, and if it can’t have her, it will kill her. Mariamne wants none of the possibilities she’s offered.
Mariamne needs only to surrender to achieve an amazing destiny.
When I picked up this book, I was surprised at how quickly I became captivated by this historical Christian novel. Set in the time period of knights and chivalry, this story captures all I imagine about this period. Truly this was a book worth reading.
As a slave girl, Mariamme has only known mistreatment from men. So finding the faith to believe in the goodness of any man along with love requires a lot of time and patience. However, when she is selected to be the wife of a king by one of his knights everything changes.
The story brought me to tears at numerous occasions. As Mariamme comes to know and accept God and Jesus Christ, her heart changes. She manages to fulfill God’s call and plan for her life.
Truly, she is the woman God has destined to be queen and to be the perfect match for her king. Full of danger, adventure, excitement, and wonderful turns, this book is truly one worth reading.
So check it out for yourself.
