Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil--facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine's governor to ferret out the truth behind rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah's mistress, the governor's wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death--and missing body--is causing such furor.
This epic drama is threaded with the tale of an unlikely romance and framed with dangers and betrayals from unexpected sources. At its core, The Centurion's Wife unfolds the testing of loyalties--between two young people whose inner searchings they cannot express, between their irreconcilable heritages, and ultimately between their humanity and the Divine they yearn to encounter.
Janette Oke, recipient of the 1992 ECPA President's Award and the 1999 CBA Life Impact Award for her significant contribution to the Christian book industry, has also won both the Gold Medallion Award and the Christy Award for fiction. Janette and her husband, Edward, live in Alberta, Canada.

Cynthia Rodrigues Manchekar4 Stars Out Of 5The faith of the early ChristiansJuly 24, 2015Cynthia Rodrigues ManchekarQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5The authors capture well the sense of intrigue and uneasiness that plagued the palace and the surroundings in those difficult times. The ego clashes, the petty thrusts for power, they are all visible here. The authors have conducted tremendous research into the history and milieu of the time. The writing is dreamy and imaginative, aspiring to heights of glorious description.
When we read the Bible, it is sometimes hard to remember that the minor characters were all real people, with real fears and failings. Christian fiction based on the Bible helps bring these to light.
I found the pace a little slow at first but it began to pick up a few chapters down the line, and I found myself intrigued by the whole premise and the manner in which the authors had captured it.
I recommend that you read this investigation into the Resurrection story.
