I absolutely loved this book! Like all Tessa's books, it is set in Bible times with characters you read about in the Bible scattered through the book. I loved the journey of Ariadne, the main character, and the emotions every decision she made evoked. The writing was so good that it was like being pulled into the story and living it alongside them (took hours of walking around in a daze after finishing it to find my way back to reality...). It made me laugh, it made me cry but more than anything, it stirred my heart and made me want to go back and not only read it again the second I finished it but also pull out my Bible and re-read the stories of Dionysus and others mentioned in it. I especially loved the way Paul (the apostle) was portrayed. Though Ariadne and her family aren't found in the Bible, the descriptions of Ephesus and their lives within it really brought the Bible to life for me. Highly, highly recommend!
