Very engagingly written, Pilate's Wife tells the tale of the woman behind the Roman governor destined to live in infamy as the crucifier of Jesus. It begins in her youth, and is attentive to the detail of daily Roman life as well as sweeping Roman politics. Claudia relates her tale in the first person, and you feel for her as she spends her brief time on earth, caught up in the last events of the Roman empire and the founding of Christianity.
