Book Review: DAWNLIGHT by Kacy Barnett-Gramckow
I love a good Biblical romance, and this one definitely fills that bill. Kacy Barnett-Gramckow has done her research, and the book fairly sings with great historical facts, harmonized with the sweet message of faith.
A young widow, Elisheba, and her son Benjamin, are all but held captive at her inlaws' home. Because her husband, Joseph, had been the only son, Benjamin was now Pallu's heir. Elisheba longs to leave and live with her parents rather than under Pallu, but to do so she would have to leave her son to be raised by a dishonest and grasping merchant.
Her deceased husband's best friend, Andronikos, has for years suppressed and hidden his own attraction for Elisheba. Even now, as her year of mourning nears its end, he cannot say anything or offer his troth. He is Greek, she is a Jew. He was a Libertine, and she was the daughter and the daughter-in-law of Sadducees.
And now too, Jesus whom Andronikos, Joseph, and Elisheba all believe in, faces betrayal and death. What can they do?
