Beautifully written. A story of forgiveness and redemption as the author tells the story of Jesus’s two sisters, Damaris and Pheodora. This is book 2 in the Jerusalem Road series but can be read as a stand-alone. The two books take place along the same timeline-that of the ministry of Jesus.
Though the sisters were raised in the same household they were quite different. Damiris, married to a wealthy merchant’s son who aspired to become a Pharisee and her sister, wed to a simple shepherd from Bethlehem. When Pheodora’s husband was put in debtor’s prison and Damaris’s husband refused to bail him out that was the turning point for the sisters.
Can she discover the purpose of the life she has been given? A story of faith, love, mercy, and forgiveness. The reader will hear the bleat of the goats and feel the glory brought on by forgiveness given and received. I enjoyed the spiritual threads that the author weaved throughout the story. We all have faith to believe.
I received a copy of The Shepherd’s Wife from the publisher in exchange for my opinion. All opinions are my own.
