Note: 
This historical novel gives readers a palpable sense of what life in ancient Israel must have been like, especially the difficulties of living under Greek occupation. The focus is on Alexandra's personal experiences during the Maccabean revolt. The descriptions of the customs practiced by Alexandra's family are fascinating and convey a sense of spiritual connectedness.
