Plot Summary: Two women occupy a place in Herod’s court. Salome is the king’s only sister and is resentful because she has been told she is from an inferior race – a people God will never accept or approve. Zara is a lowly handmaid who serves Salome, but where Salome spies conspiracies and treachery, Zara sees hurting people in need of understanding and compassion. Powerful and powerless, Idumean and Jew, selfish and selfless– both women struggle to reach their goals and survive in Herod the Great’s tumultuous court, where no one is trustworthy and no one is safe. This novel is the fourth and final installment in Hunt’s Silent Years series.
