The Centurion's Wife: by Janette Oke and Davis Bunn
Honestly: this is the BEST book by Janette Oke that I've read so far!!! It's quite inspiring how it tells about the Judean culture and how they did things in the Bible days. Here's what it's about:
Leah, a servant in her uncle's house (Pontius Pilate, yes, that guy who washed his hands of Jesus' life) is forced by her mistress to investigate the death of Jesus, by interacting with the Disciples and the people who hang around them, while they are in Jerusalem. Well, thing is, so is the guy she's gonna be forced to marry, the handsome Centurion. That was a part of what he had to get done in order to become betrothed to Leah. A few threats to some of the favorite characters you meet, and a couple action moments, and sweet one's: it ends. On a particularly sweet note too!
