Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story of the Jews should be well known both to Jews and Christians, at leastup to a point. Christians will be familiar with the accounts of Yeshua (Jesus)and the apostles from the New Testament; Jews will know the accounts of theGreat Jewish War that brought the destruction of Jerusalem and the SecondTemple, and the epic tragedy of Masada. Thus the first century of this currentera is at least generally understood through these two distinct, yetcomplementary, lenses. What each will find unfamiliar is what happened next:that unexplored dark time between the fall of Masada in 73 CE, and the finaldestruction of Judea in 135 CE at the end of the Bar Kokhba Revolt.
Miriam Feinberg Vamosh provides invaluable assistance in shedding light on thatdark era through her riveting novel, The Scroll... 
Vamosh draws on her own extensive knowledge of the period to create amulti-generational saga that is not only entertaining and educational, butentirely believable... Miriam Feinberg Vamosh has done a great service to help us all understand why we are the people we are today." - Albert J. McCarn, The Barking Fox
***
"This novel is a page-turner, at times a gripping one, leaving the reader with new and significant insights into the complexities of early ties between Jews and Jesus' first followers, ties that continue to impact our relationships to this very day...Vamosh's The Scroll is a must read."  - David Biven, The Jerusalem Perspective

From the Author

I had been a tour educator in Israel before I began writing, returning to a craft that had interested me as a teenager. My series of illustrated,non-fiction books about ancient times in the Holy Land including daily life, biblical foodways, women's lives in Bible times and children's lives in Bible times, were published over the years that followed. Of the thousands of archaeological finds I learned about in my research for this series, one stood out - the one that eventually produced my historical novel, The Scroll. It is divorce document found in a Judean Desert cave. It named both husband and wife and even the exact amount of the settlement the wife received. The fateful date? About one year after the Temple was destroyed, and five years after the rebels took over the famed plateau of Masada, where, amazingly, the document itself says it was issued. I pondered this document for years. On the one hand, I asked myself what would lead a couple to divorce under such circumstances? Either that is the simplest question  to answer, or the most complicated. In The Scroll, I pictured one of those survivors as the woman mentioned in the divorce document. The Scroll becomes her story and the story of her descendants through three generations, until the horrifying, waning days of the Bar Kokhba Revolt. In  I suggest responses to a burning question that people of faith are asking now more than ever: How and why can religious fervor turn destructive? The Scroll makes clear that this period of "ancient history," still impacts our lives today. I wish you an enriching read.
