A jealous Egyptian queen. A lascivious Galilean governor. A beautiful servant girl. Theirs is a story of prophecy, self-discovery, and revelation.


The year is 39 BC. All of Alexandria awaits the arrival of Herod, the Galilean governor with his eye on the Judean kingship. The handmaid of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, receives a troubling visit from her aging mentor.


An orphan since birth, Lydia lives in the palace at the demand of Cleopatra and her royal child, the son of Julius Caesar. But Lydia has a growing problem on her hands: her beauty is becoming a liability to the aging queen, and the visiting Herod's undisguised interest only makes matters worse.


When Lydia's mentor is murdered, the handmaid inherits a daunting task. An ancient set of sealed scrolls, the secret writings of the prophet Daniel, must be returned to Jerusalem-before those who killed her mentor destroy the scrolls as well. The future of the Israelites depends on it. So Lydia leaves the palace to serve as lady's maid to Herod's wife in the Holy City.


As Lydia is absorbed into the machinations of Herod's household, her mission- and her people's hope of a Messianic King-are endangered at every turn. Can Lydia avoid the adulterous intentions of Herod? Can she deliver the scrolls to the mysterious man on the steps of the Temple? Will the true King of Israel ever rise?


"Higley amazes us with another of her action-packed feats of storytelling." -RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, TOP PICK! (on Palace of Darkness)

TRACY HIGLEY started her first novel at the age of eight and has been hooked on writing ever since. She chased down a graduate degree in Ancient History to help bring readers more of what they love about her books: adventure that transports readers into the heart of the stories she tells, sweeping them into the smells, sights, and sounds of the ancient world. She has authored thirteen novels, including "The Queen's Handmaid" and "Awakening", and has traveled through Greece, Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and Italy, bringing back for her readers all the history and culture her head could hold.
