The Tent-Maker's Wife

 Nineteen-year-old Priscilla’s privileged life in Rome changes with the stroke of the emperor’s pen in AD 49 when she and her husband Aquila because they are Christians. As the only son of a devout Jewish widow, Aquila feels compelled by duty, to take his mother with them—even though she hates Priscilla because she is a Gentile and a Roman.

Can Priscilla hold on to her faith in a raucous, pagan city—and endure the hatred of her mother-in-law?
