Product description

Product Description

After receiving an ancient ruby clasp from her long dead grandmother, Hannah Wilson decides to visit Masada, supposedly the place where this gift was given to one of her ancestors. Travelling with her is Max Vallier, her best friend, who was already going to Herod’s fortress in the desert, as part of an archaeological excavation team.

Once there, Hannah is disturbed by strange visions. Visions, which seem to revolve around the AD66 attack by Zealot rebels, on the Roman garrison based at the fortress.

As her two worlds begin to entwine, Hannah realises that she is experiencing the events of the past as they unfold, events, that so far she has only dreamed about. Pulled into the ancient world, she tends to three Roman soldiers who survived the attack, but who are now captives. Back in the modern world, she finds artefacts that tie her to her ancient counterpart. Meanwhile, her relationship with Max takes an interesting turn, but just as they admit their feelings for each other, a tragic accident tears them apart.

Fate intervenes and Hannah slips into the world of Ancient Masada. There, away from all modern trappings, she must rely on her wits and instincts to deal with the challenges of her alternate life. A life in which she, an unmarried Hebrew woman, is a healer - a trained physician fighting to keep alive the men under her care. This life becomes more complicated as she realises she is falling in love with one of the Roman soldiers, a love that could have deadly consequences.

Unsure whether she will ever be able to return to the modern world, Hannah accepts her destiny, rising to the challenges of living on an isolated fortress and, believing that she has a chance to save those she loves by using the knowledge she has brought with her from two thousand years in the future. The knowledge that, eventually, Jerusalem will fall and, that those escaping the city will make their way to this outpost, followed by an avenging Roman army intent on destruction.

Will Hannah escape? Will she ever see Max again, or is she doomed to die along with hundreds of others as Masada falls - and what does any of this have to do with an ancient ruby clasp?

A historical novel that beautifully ties past and present together in such a seamless manner. Hannah is given a heirloom that sends her on a journey to the past when the Romans were the conquerors and the Jewish people were on the run. When the past and future meet in her dreams, Hannah feels her worlds start to collide in such a way that she may not be able to keep her sanity. A perfect blend of history that transcends time.

The Pomegranate Tree takes place at Masada - a fortress in the Judaean Desert built by Herod the Great, King of Judaea (37 - 4BC) - in the current day on an archeological dig, and in ancient times during the lead up to the last stand by Jewish patriots against of the Roman army, in 73 A.D.

Modern day Hannah is searching for clues to the history of an ancient ruby clasp, handed down through the generations of her family. She finds herself slipping back to ancient times and melding with the life of her ancestor, Hannah, a Jewish healer based at Masada.

Meticulously researched, The Pomegranate Tree is an exciting novel that includes time-slip, ancient history and some red hot romance - (maybe not one for your Grandma) - some of my favourite elements in a novel.

Rosie Chapel is an English-born, Australian-based author and this is her debut novel. The sequel, Echoes of Stone and Fire, is available now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise! 2 February 2017
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have so little time for reading that I rarely pick up a book if someone hasn't recommended it or I am already a devoted fan of the author. I happen to have a weakness for time slip novels though, and this one caught my attention through my Twitter feed. (To any authors who do Twitter promotion - it does pay off sometimes!) I really enjoyed this book! It kept me coming back, and when I wasn't reading it, I was wondering how the characters were doing and what was going to happen next. In addition, it was nice to learn a little bit about the history of Masada. I've always known about it in general, but I never really knew the facts behind what happened.

The only tiny critique I have of the book is that the author has the characters speaking Hebrew a few times. Technically they didn't speak Hebrew at this point. The every day language was Aramaic. Hebrew was indeed the language of the Jews in ancient times, but by this point in their history Hebrew had become more of the theological language for reading and teaching in the synagogue. Aramaic was the lingua franca, or the "trade language" because it was widespread across the region, particularly in Roman Judea (539 B.C. - 70 A.D.). BUT, that is not something most readers will pick up on, so it is by no means a criticism. Merely a critique.

Aside from that, the story was well paced, the characters well drawn, the detail and description evocative. I will definitely be reading the next book in this series!

If you enjoy historical fiction, particularly time slip, this book is well worth your time.

What a fun read! The love story is super sweet, I really liked how they already knew each other before they actually hooked up. This author has a serious knowledge of ancient history and was an added treat making this book not your typical romance novel:) Can't wait to begin reading book two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first novel in a trilogy 28 January 2017
By Brian Kitchen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an excellent novel of two intertwining stories, one set in the present day and the other in Roman times. Hannah Wilson is left a family heirloom by her grandmother, an ancient ruby clasp said to have been given to an ancestor at the Roman siege of the Jewish citadel of Masada. Hannah decides to visit Masada and accompanied by Max Vallier, her best friend, joins an archaeological team excavating the ruins. It is then that Hannah’s adventures begin and she is somehow transported back to the past, finding herself now occupying the body of a young Jewish woman, a healer, fighting to keep alive three Roman soldiers, who are prisoners there. I won’t spoil the book for potential readers by giving anymore of the plot away, but will only say that I was engrossed in it. Rosie Chapel has researched the period very well and is a very talented writer. I can thoroughly recommend the book and am very much looking forward to reading the other two novels in the trilogy.
