A Note From the Publisher
“June Trop brings to life a fascinating figure in 1st Century CE Alexandria, Miriam bat Isaac. Despite its ancient setting, the actions, conflicts, and characters come across realistically, even vividly. You will feel very much there as you witness crimes of murder, jealousy, and greed.” — The Amazing Kreskin
