Daughter of RomeThat will threaten to bury them Their courtship unwittingly shadowed by murder and betrayal Priscilla and Auila slowly work to build a community of believers while their lives grow increasingly complicated thanks to a shaggy dog a mysterious runaway and a ruthless foe desperate for love But when they’re banished from their home by a capricious emperor they m Historical fiction is by far my favorite genre in Christian fiction and Tessa Afshar is one of my top fave authors in that genre I’ve enjoyed all her books and her latest Daughter of Rome is no exception Priscilla and Auila are standouts in the New Testament and it’s fun to consider what their back story might’ve been I was pleased with Ms Afshar’s portrayal of a strong and gifted Christian woman dedicating her life not only to the physical needs of those around her but also as a leading and respected teacher of God’s word Her need for copious amounts of grace made her an endearing and relatable character as well Finely woven details bring the ancient Roman culture alive and make it easy to imagine at least a little of what it might’ve been like Daughter of Rome was a little less suspenseful than some of her other books but not less compelling The character development kept the story moving with a few mysteries to unravel thrown into the mix

A woman with a devastating secret A man bent on proving his worth A chance encounter that catapults them into the heart of historyWhen the daughter of a prominent Roman general meets a disinherited Jewish immigrant neither one can dream of God’s plan to transform them into the most influential couple of the early church Nor can they anticipate the mountains As with all Tessa Afshar novels I find myself at a loss for how to explain just how much I adore Daughter of Rome This novel is exuisite It is a beautifully deep and complex story There is so much spiritual goodness contained in the pages of this novel I find one read is definitely not enough The plot of Daughter of Rome is highly engaging so much so the pages flew by The characters are superb Afshar did an outstanding job bringing Priscilla Auila and Paul back to life These are people I would love to personally converse with today Can you imagine that conversation? I also enjoyed how Afshar depicted 1st century life in Rome and Greece The crowded marketplaces the wealthy homes of the Senators the degradation of the rough city streets the bathhouses — I was truly transported back in time Afshar did her homework with this novel as the research is impeccable and uite enthralling And I love Afshar’s discussions about faith love and forgiveness Afshar knocked this one out of the park; Daughter of Rome may be her best novel yetPriscilla is one of the most selfless and kind characters I’ve ever read She is a role model for today’s women If we had 110th of Priscilla’s selflessness as described in this book our world would be a much better place Throughout the novel Priscilla is constantly suirreling away food She only ever eats half of her meals and she does this so she can save up food to give away to people less fortunate than her In addition to being selfless she is also incredibly wise One day gathered in a small group to discuss the Scriptures and Yeshua Priscilla states “The we study the I realize it’s not so much about understanding or knowledge Faith is trust Trusting our future and our past into Yeshua’s keeping Learning that the Christ is the beginning and end of all our needs” What beautiful truth Too many times our relationship with Christ is defined by how much we’ve memorized from the Bible But how is the condition of our hearts? If we lost everyone and everything today would we cling to God in faith or raise our fist at Him in anger and fear?Faith — real genuine faith — means trusting Jesus with our entire lives It means putting our lives our loved ones’ lives our finances and our futures into God’s capable hands and saying “Alright Lord I’m yours Your will not mine be done” It was such a blessing to me to watch Priscilla live out her beautiful faith in Daughter of Rome It was uite inspirational really I long to live strong and sure in my faith I know I have a lot of work to do in my life to get there but Jesus is worth making the changes and putting in the hard work to be less of me and of Him Jesus is worth me losing what I don’t need so I’ll rely on Him He is worth pain suffering and weeping He is worth my joy love and happiness He is worth my everythingDaughter of Rome is a 2020 must read It’s a story that will stick with me long after the final page has been read I absolutely adore this story and cannot recommend it enough Purchase a copy today It will leave you with so much love for Jesus you won’t be able to keep from overflowing in His joy and thanksgivingI received a review copy of this novel in eBook form from the author via her publisher Tyndale House through NetGalley In no way has this influenced my review The opinions expressed in this review are my own
