Growing up in a village near the Sea of Galilee, the adored daughter of the wealthy and respected leader Jairus, Tamar was content with her place in her community. She knew that in her early teens she would be married to a suitable young man, and she would become a good Jewish wife and mother. She would adhere to the laws of her faith. But then a Teacher came to town, and began to speak of a way of life far different than what she and her society had been raised to believe. He preached love and acceptance and performed miracles of healing to hundreds... and in so doing made many enemies who were offended by his claims, and humiliated by their revealed hypocrisies. As Tamar and her friend Julian, the servant of a Roman Centurion, follow Jesus and see the miracles he performs, they come to believe that he is The Messiah so long anticipated in Hebrew scripture. But with many powerful enemies, his life is in danger, and as Tamar and her family travel to Jerusalem for Passover, they little realize the earth-shaking events that are about to sweep them and their world in a completely different direction.
