I loved this book. I also was intrigued and could not put this book down. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction. This book demonstrates the love and grace of god clearly. It shows that no matter how low you fall or how bad your past gods lave can redeem you. He does not see your past and accepts you as are. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
