About the Book

What readers are saying:

Tragically beautiful. The follow up to Jars of Clay was intense. The Christianity themes were heavy, but necessarily so. When Lee Strauss describes her book as Romeo and Juliet in ancient Rome, she isn't far from the mark. I won't give anything else away about the ending, but it was a great read (1 sitting) that was satisfying even if there are no rainbows and butterflies. -J. Harrell, Amazon reviewer
