Editorial Reviews


Wilder (The Fragrance Shed by a Violet) provides a fresh, entertaining take on one of the lesser-known women of the Bible: Claudia Procula, daughter of the last Oracle of Pythia in Delphi and wife of Lucius Pontius Pilate. Told from their alternating perspectives, the story begins with Claudia recognizing in adolescence that she is gifted with premonitions and a knack for academics. Meanwhile, Lucius distinguishes himself in battle as a standout soldier and is named Roman tribune by the end of his first campaign. Lucius moves quickly up the ranks, but when he is promoted to Prelate of Judea he realizes he is unable to control the unrest of the land he now must govern. --Publisher's Weekly

For anyone looking for one of those easy, cozy reads, this is not it. For someone who is looking for a fantastic plot of the ancient world filled with suspense, romance, and history, this is definitely the book you want. Not only is this a well-researched book that allows the reader to actually feel as if they are walking the streets in Judea and living within this realm, it s also a book that does not avoid controversy. It simply is a plot so well-crafted that the controversy comes second to the characters you will never forget. --Feathered Quill

Where this book really started to hook and draw me in was its second half, and the inevitable introduction of Christ into the life of the couple - from this moment on I was utterly engaged. Certainly, we all know Pilate from this primary source - his part in the persecution and execution of Jesus - but Lin admirably portrays Pilate as a decent and honourable man, put in an unenviable situation; she presents a good case that the Prelate s notoriety is a great injustice and misinterpretation of history. She does this objectively and even with a hint of respect for the man, and this is to her huge credit, because I know the huge importance of Lin s own Christian faith to her (this said, if she is multi-layered about Pilate, her contempt for King Herod is notable a character she does not so much craft, as dollop like some odious caricature across the page. Fair play to her for this, however it can be reasonably assumed that anybody who murders a reported 14,000 infants is generally revolting, in anybody s book). --Amazon Review
