Giveaway - A Stray Drop of Blood by Roseanna White
If you like Women’s Fiction, Historicals, and/or Biblical Fiction, you will love this book! It is very well written, dynamic, intensely emotional, and will make you think. If you ever wondered what life was like in the time when Jesus lived on the earth, how the different cultures clashed, and the different roles of the various classes, such as servants, slaves, and masters, or if you just want to read a really intense, true-to-life story, this book is definitely for you.
As the back cover says, Beautiful is a dangerous thing to be when one is unprotected. Abigail is beautiful, and although she was born a free Jew in Jerusalem in the time of Jesus, as a child she is sold as a slave to a Roman centurion. Through all the twists and turns of her life, she comes to believe in Jesus on the day of his crucifixion and her life takes on new meaning and new joy.
Though not a romance, which is what I usually read, it does have some romance in it, and is only for mature readers. But it carries a powerful message—more than one powerful message, actually. I predict great things from this author!
