This book is set in the first century beginning in the week of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and ending at Pentecost. Leah is a servant of Pilate?s wife and Alban is a centurion, tasked with finding out what has happened to the body of Christ which was buried, and is now missing. It explores evidences for the resurrection. As Leah and Alban search for the truth and interact with followers of Christ, they are not prepared for what it will mean for their lives.
I liked the story, and the pace. It was interesting to have the first witnesses interviewed. I was a little surprised that Leah and Alban didn?t meet until the half way point of the book. I can see that some of the characters who were introduced will be in Book Two. Looking forward to getting it.

Beautiful. They really brought the third person story of Jesus' resurrection to life. It's nice to see or to think of being in someone elses shoes during that time. Seeing what the people could have seen and how they feel. it really brings the story of Jesus to life.

The Centurion's Wife
Great read. I have never read a book written by Janette Oke I didn't like. She is good always. I didn't want to put it down.
