When Thomas impulsively decides to follow the teacher from Nazareth, the twins argue bitterly. Tasmin refuses to be abandoned or to let her brother be taken in by a magician-prophet.
Shepherd’s Wife: Yeshua of Nazareth has two sisters: Damaris, married to a wealthy merchant's son, and Pheodora, wed to a simple shepherd from Bethlehem.

When Pheodora's husband is unexpectedly thrown into debtors' prison, she is shocked to learn that a loan from her generous sister would jeopardize her brother-in-law's religious aspirations.
"Any reader of biblical fiction knows the name Angela Hunt; she's one of the stars of the genre, and you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy her books. She writes with conviction, believability, and a strong sense of time and place, as well as a good understanding of human nature." --Historical Novels Review
