Was it fate, destiny, or some divine plan that brought four very different travelers together in their struggle to survive what should have been a routine trip to Rome? Driven by events, these new friends and their family members found themselves playing pivotal roles at a focal point in the history of western civilization. For winds that had spread a great fire across Rome also carried embers eastward to Judea, where they threatened to ignite a conflict that would forever change the world for Jews and Christians. In this first of a series of four novels the Jewish rebellion begins in a backdrop of secret tunnels and assassins, where the dreaded Sicarii can strike like lightning and blend back into the crowd just as quickly. Even trained Roman mercenaries are no match for them. In between these historical events—recorded by the historian and eyewitness Josephus—there’s the story of the people involved. You get to meet them in Cry for Jerusalem.
Cry For Jerusalem: Resisting Tyranny – the first in a 4 part book series covering the events leading up to the destruction of the second temple of Jerusalem in 70CE
