A woman with a powerful secret. A man set on proving his worth. A chance encounter that launches them both into the heart of history.
When the daughter of a Roman general meets a disinherited Jewish immigrant, neither one suspects they will fulfill God's plan to transform them into one of the most influential couples of the early church. They also don't account for the mountains that will threaten to bury them. Their courtship is unwittingly shadowed by murder and betrayal, as Priscilla and Aquila slowly work to build a community of believers, while their lives grow increasingly complicated due to a shaggy dog, a mysterious runaway, and a ruthless foe desperate for love. When they're banished from their home by a capricious emperor, they must join forces with an unusual rabbi named Paul, and fight to turn treachery into redemption.
Daughter of Rome uses impeccable research and vivid detail to deliver a tale that is both an emotive love story and immersive journey through first-century Roman and Corinth, reminding readers once again why Debbie Macomber has said that "no one brings the Bible to life like Tessa Afshar".
