My novel is historical, woven around the life of Christ, some of His disciples, and a little of John the Baptist. Susannah, the title character, was one of the faithful women in Scripture who followed Him and contributed to His support. In the novel, she is one of the ones He healed, thus enabling her to marry Jacob, her Jewish fiancé. Jacob is a wholesale merchant and travels frequently. After he and Susannah are married, they occasionally see the Lord, the Rabbi Jeshua. They also come to know Mary, the Lord's mother, and learn the vital details of His birth and conception. Follow Jacob as he travels to India to buy jewels for Herod Philip II and meets one of the magi, who saw the Lord at birth. Journey with Susannah as she and other women accompany Christ and His disciples, encountering the hostility of the Jewish high priests and Pharisees and witnessing many of His miracles. She also witnesses Jesus' crucifixion, after which she is reunited with Jacob and they both see the Lord after His resurrection. I go from the deep disappointment and horror of the crucifixion to the glory and the richness of the coming of the Spirit.
