Jerusalem AD 34. Jerusha desires to bless her husband, Timon with many sons, descendants from Judah. After four miscarriages, she’s haunted by her past and believes she’s cursed.
Her empty womb brings shame. The old women wag their tongues. Without sons to present to Timon, she feels worthless. Unfullfilled. Is Timon’s love not enough?
Throughout Jerusalem, parents are torn from their children and imprisoned for their beliefs. The high priest plots against her family. Jerusha is convinced that no one who touches her cursed life is safe.
In her father’s villa, nestled high on Mount Zion, Timon insists they harbor orphans and widows of persecuted Yeshua followers. The mysterious Roman decree on her door, sealed with her grandfather’s lion and butterfly signet ring, provides their only protection. How much longer before someone rips it down? More intrigue unfolds when Devorah, a beautiful widow, seeks refuge at their villa. A mysterious trader watches from afar. Sudden tragedy strikes.
Jerusha flees and takes a dangerous journey to Shiloh. A divine encounter with Father God forever changes her identity. She returns to a city that overflows with controversy and conflicts. Will the high priest’s plot succeed? Or will she live to raise a royal family?
