Shunned for the many sins of her mother, Nava, Mara struggles against the constant threats of starvation or exile. Mara and Nava's lives are forever changed with the arrival of two men: Shem, a mysterious young man from Caesarea, and Jesus, a Jewish teacher s transformed by Jesus, but his teachings come too late and she is stoned by the unforgiving villagers. Desperate to save her dying mother, Mara and Shem embark on a journey to seek Jesus' help--a journey that brings unexpected love and unimaginable heartbreak."--Provided by publisher.

This is the first book in a series of three. All three have been great reading for me. I would highly recommend all three.
