"Sean Barrett depicts multiple emotionsespecially fear, passion, and excitementin a wide array of characters. The story begins in modern-day Israel and then moves to Palestine during the time of the New Testament. The harrowing story of Peniel, a beggar blind from birth, is fraught with excitement as he yearns for the Messiah to come and bring peace. Suspense and romance also play a part in this wonderful story, the first of 10 in the A.D. Chronicles series. Barrett adds just the right touches of drama to keep one glued to ones earphones."
