    Daughter of Rome is biblical fiction at its best! Author Tessa Ashfar tells the story of Priscilla, believed to be a Gentile, who was converted to Christianity and worked tirelessly to spread God's Word. Priscilla and her Jewish husband Aquila don't receive a lot of mention in the New Testament but their importance cannot be denied. In her end notes Ashfar explains how she determined that Priscilla might have been from a noble Roman family and why she chose to include both historical figures and fictional characters to create this story. Bible scripture confirms that Priscilla and Aquila saved Paul's life, they worked with him to spread the Gospel message, and they set up churches in their homes in three different cities; the fictional characters and events that are included have been added for creative interest. Priscilla and Aquila are both fascinating biblical figures but it is Priscilla who claimed my heart. Through much of this story, Priscilla doubts that she has truly been forgiven of a past sin that still haunts her. As deeply as she loves Yeshua, as strongly as she believes that He will forgive, she continues to have a "tiny root of guilt". And, then, as she is reassuring another distraught woman that total forgiveness is possible, Priscilla finally feels it for herself. "Her own sin. Her own failure was no match for Yeshua's love. She was washed clean, utterly. Utterly. She felt the root wither. Die." This is a beautiful story of love between a man and woman but it is also a story of the overwhelming love that a man and woman share for their God. One a Jew, one a Gentile, but together, they worked to tell others of His goodness. Daughter of Rome is wonderful biblical fiction filled with faith, forgiveness, and redemption. It is a book that I will read again and I recommend it highly! I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation to write a favorable review and I am voluntarily sharing my own thoughts.
