Falling in love can often be painful, and sometimes it's wildly inappropriate. Like, for example, the daughter of the Roman Governor of Judea and a Jewish Zealot? Almost as bad, a Roman Tribune (engaged to the Governor's daughter) and a slave girl!
It would be hard enough to work out these problems of the heart if that were all that was happening. But all this takes place in a particularly turbulent period of history. Events that will change the course of history are happening, and the young lovers will inevitably be caught up in it.
So this is more than a love story, it's an insight into some of the minor and background characters of one of the greatest stories ever. The author has woven together the historical facts and people with the fictional ones so skilfully that you can't see the joins, and throws in a lot of intriguing observations about people's lives in those days that add to the authenticity.
Overall, this isn't just a good romance story, it's also a clever and well-imagined look behind the scenes of probably the most important events in history.
