Amora is a sweeping action-adventure and a moving examination of spirituality and faith based on the true story of the noblewoman who inspired Justin Martyr’s petition to the Roman Senate.
The story follows Leo, a stern Patrician, who finds his life turned upside down after he betrays his Christian wife and her slave to die in the arena. Meanwhile, the slave’s fiancé seeks revenge, and Leo’s crippled son struggles with the loss of his mother as he pursues a budding romance.
Praise from Reviewers:
"This is a powerful story that will, unquestionably, resonate with people of faith, but has enough universal appeal to find a home with crossover readers as well."
"The core concept of the novel feels like Christian forgiveness on a collision course with revenge."
"The ideas of vengeance and forgiveness as two sides of a coin is a really compelling underlying motif for this novel."
"I loved the inexorable pull of vengeance and betrayal pulling on all the characters. Knowing that the merciless hand of fate is moving towards Leo, creates the kind of delicious tension that drives stories in this genre."
"We watch these characters struggle in different ways but all of them find their way to the same place at the end. I liked seeing the tension throughout the book as these moments of fate and decision wound together."
"The novel does a great job zooming out for the big picture but also being able to really focus in on intimate human details and moments with these characters."
"The blending of several distinct and quite separate storylines come together very well and provide an emotionally satisfying end to the book."
