Description

Widowed Euodia, known to her neighbours as “the Lydian woman,” seeks to make a fresh start by moving to the foreign city of Philippi. She finds new purpose after meeting Paulos, apostle to the Gentiles, who opens her eyes to helping those in need, particularly women and those who have been enslaved.

Retired Roman soldier Hector has settled in Philippi with dreams of a future filled with wealth and status, pooling his army earnings with Lucius, his fellow comrade-in-arms turned business partner. His hopes are dashed, however, when Paulos robs their youngest slave of her lucrative ability to foretell the future, rendering her worthless to Hector’s ambition.

Determined to find someone to restore the slave girl’s valuable “gift,” Hector is willing to travel to the ends of earth to do so. Following close behind him, Euodia and her servants embark on a journey to rescue Sabina, not for gain, but to set her free forever
