4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gary Selikow on December 1, 2007
Format: Paperback
After the besieged Jews at Masada commit mass suicide, rather than submit themselves to the mercies of the occupying Roman forces, 2 women and 5 children are the only survivors.
One of them, a young woman, Ruth, sets out to trace the events of Masada, and the vents leading up tp the heroic Jewish last stand at Masada against the enemies of Israel.
Her narrative is filled in by many including the older women and veteran of the siege of Jerusalem Sarah, various veteran Zealots and a Romanized Jew, Jesse.
We also learn of the perfidy and treachery of the Jewish-born pro-Roman historian and propagandist Josephus.
This book is a moving and engaging historical novelization of the Roman conquest of the Judea, of the cruelty of the procurators and Roman occupying forces, of the siege and destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple, and the last stand at Masada and tragic mass suicide.
It is an exciting narrative of these events and a glimpse into the soul of Israel.
