Bethany House






351 pages


This is a book about a strong woman. Euodia, who lived during Biblical times in the Roman Empire. This story brings names and places of that time to life. Euodia wants to make a new life for herself after becoming widowed. Moving to Philippi, she meets the new apostle to the Gentiles, Paulos.

You might remember from Scripture that Paul releases a young woman from her enslavement because of her money making ability to tell the future. When this happens, her “owner” Hector is willing to do anything to get her back and begin his lucrative business again. But Euodia is set on rescuing Sabina so that she might be free forever.
