I enjoyed this book. It is an intense story of spiritual warfare, faith, and love. Not knowing much about Petra, the descriptions of the city and historical detail were very interesting. Cassia is a dedicated mother with a searching heart. Julian is a man struggling to step out in faith. I could relate to both of these main characters; they were well written and three dimensional. The story was fast paced with a satisfying ending. I will be passing this book around my family as I know they'll like it as well!
