Summary
Caught up in the political and social chaos of early 1st Century Jerusalem, Keziah, a young Jewess, and Roman soldier Demetrius think they're doing their best to navigate Judean life. Both filled with prejudices and incorrect notions of how it's meant to be, they end up creating even more misguided philosophies together after an accidental meeting one day. Demetrius finds himself developing an unhealthy attachment to Keziah, who is betrothed and then married to an older priest. And for her part, Keziah selfishly uses Demetrius as a distraction from her abusive husband. Yet their difficult situations and poor decisions ultimately lead them to a complicated discovery that can’t help but forever change their worldview... and the very world itself.
