Jessica S. reviewed Brides of the Empire: Three Romances Thrive Among Christians of the First Century on
A very well written religious romance novel. It is actually three stories in one.
Not your typical lust and cheese romance. Very nice story line with a bit of religion. Not an over whelming in your face kind of story.
In a culture rich in diversity and ripe for change, three young women within the Roman Empire struggle to find true and lasting love. Sara, a Jewish slave to a wealthy tribune; Chara, bought off the block by a former slave; and Anna, a Samaritan attracted to a Jewish man? The danger of unveiling the passions of their hearts has never been greater. Will three young Christians express their faith and find romance in the process-or forfeit everything for a chance to love?
Three great stories in one book, by one author. A great read.
Absolutley loved this book! I've never read historical romance that went this far back into history (first century Rome). Wonderful characters, and three stories that I could just lose myself in. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction!
