Land of Promise
AD 25. The prefect of Judea, Pontius Pilate, rules with an iron fist.
A storm is coming and, unbeknownst to the people of Palestine, their world is about to be shaken to its core. What will become of Varius the roman soldier, Eliashib the ambitious Jewish scribe, Shifra the slave, Sarah her mother and Asher the adventurer?
The stories of these people – their bravery and cowardice, their triumphs and disasters, their search for adventure and purpose – all interweave to form the second instalment of this epic trilogy.
From the treachery of local politics and the threat of an occupying army, through the brutal reality of slavery to the quest for meaning in an unforgiving world, Land of Promise is a thrilling tale of life in the ancient world.
