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.

The authors opened up the world during Christ's death and really put into light what and how people were thinking after Christ died and rose again. They looked at it from different angles and it made me think again about how amazing it really was that He is alive!
ywmm5 Stars Out Of 5great historical background researchFebruary 16, 2012ywmmlove this book...a mix between fiction and historical documentary told from the point of view of a slave girl working for Pilate's wife and her betrothed husband, a Roman centurion whose lad was healed by Jesus' "remote" command, both searching for the truth to find out what actually happened to the corpse of Jesus after the crucifixion. There were a lot of details about the daily lives of both the Romans and the Jews living in Palestine during that period of time, adding a lot of colours which enrich the understanding and the cultural background to the biblical account. Greatly recommended.
