And now for a book that tackles Biblical history, from a new voice from Louisiana, and that makes a great Valentine's present!
Ancient language expert Dr. Clotile Lejeune is happily living a quiet life in Seattle when her world is profoundly shaken. After she learns that her estranged father has been murdered, Cloe must travel with her soldier son, J. E., back to her Louisiana hometown to unlock the mysteries of a two-thousand-year-old oil jar her father has left her----a jar inscribed with the name Judas Iscariot. Anxious to find her father's killer and dispel her own personal demons, Cloe has no idea that what she is about to uncover has the potential to set the international religious community on fire.
After the many lost scrolls/gospels were discovered and translated, questions began to arise if Judas has not been as evil as the bible shown, but actually a willing pawn in what was to come. Was he acting to fulfill the prophesy, knowing his part would bear him ill? What if there was more to the story?
