For fans of The Red Tent.
She is from a poor Jewish settlement in a powerful Greco-Roman world. When Othniel bar-Ismael, a textile merchant from Jerusalem, arrives in her village, he is determined to take her for his wife. But the reality of living as a fine lady is not as grand as she thought it would be. When she meets the man of her dreams, an acquaintance of her husband’s, her life is forever changed.
Caught with her lover, she is dragged and kicked to the Temple Court. In the end, she must make sense of the second chance she has been granted.
