The sweeping oral saga surrounds the birth of Christianity and the very personal story of Leah, a woman compelled into a betrothal she never wanted yet drawn by a faith she never expected. When her family's wealth and power are lost forever, Leah is sent to Pontius Pilate in hopes that he might arrange a strategic marriage for her. When she finds herself betrothed to a centurion named Alban, she views it as a fate worse than death. Alban, head of the garrison near Galilee, has ambitions that could one day see him at the seat of power - Rome. Eager to prove himself, he takes on the assignment of a lifetime, one that will put his career, his beliefs, and his life at risk. But when the death and missing body of an obscure rabbi compel Leah and Alban to search for answers, what they discover changes everything.
