Publisher's Summary

Thomas and Tasmin, twin siblings hired to oversee a wedding feast in Cana, worry when the host runs out of wine...until a guest tells Tasmin to have the servants fill the pitchers by the gate with water from the cistern. Reluctantly, she obeys and is amazed when rainwater turns into the finest wine ever tasted in Cana. 

When Thomas impulsively decides to follow the teacher from Nazareth, he and Tasmin argue - since the twins have been together since the womb, Tasmin can't accept losing her brother to some magician-prophet. Aided by Jude, younger brother to Jesus of Nazareth, she decides to follow the Nazarene's group and do whatever she must to mend the fractured relationship and bring her brother home.

Wonderful

The book was fantastic. I listened to it a week before Christmas. It was refreshing to hear an inspirational story amidst the negative news of 2020.

The narration was great.both narrators brought the characters to life. I could see the movie play out as I listened to them. Great job!

Another hit by Hunt

Angela Hunt has never disappointed me, I have listened to all of her books, this one about Jesus, I loved the emphasis on all the healings Jesus did while on earth. I hope she writes a sequel to this one, feeling like there is a whole story waiting to be written with the remaining characters.

Wonderful Imagery

This book really brought to life a potential sideline stories of the people that crossed paths with Jesus Christ. The inner thoughts, doubt, searching for answers are believable.

Nice introduction to biblical narrative

The author has written many books and has vast knowledge and understanding of biblical passage and their possible meanings.
i think i was slightly dissapointed with the way she tried to link the characters to every possible encounters, didn't seem realistic even for that time (although nothing is impossible to God).
Nonetheless, I was expecting another layer of depths to the understanding of the scriptures and no simplistic explanation, anyways i was jist slightly dissapointed, but that's on me having a certain degree of expectations. i alos felt the author perhaps added too many layers of westernized ways that might not have been true for that time frame.
That said the book overall was a good read/listen and the narrators vouces where pleasant and made the story believable by switchibg from female yo male.
It was a good biblical story.

My first Angela Hunt book

This book was so good!!! I enjoyed the male/female voices reading as it made it even easier to listen to.
I laughed, I was surprised and I fell in love with the characters. As long as it is I couldn’t stop listening! I had already picked up my next book “Esther” before I finished this one! Lol

If you are looking for a quality book to keep you interested and your heart happy this one will surely be for you!

Engaging Biblical fiction

This story is situated within the time frame of Jesus' ministry, as it follows the families of Jesus and Thomas the disciple. I enjoyed the insights into life during that period as well as the thoughtful exploration of possible attitudes and challenges faced by the family members. The story line is woven amid events depicted in the Gospels. Reading was solid, and I would recommend the book.

Did our hearts not burn within us!

The beauty of this story takes the truth of the scriptures and delivers it in such a way that it makes tears come to my eyes and my heart yearn to sit at the feet of God, my Savior! To God be the glory!

A little lacking.

Although the reader was excellent the storyline deviated from the Gospel, even though it was fictional.

Not my favorite

It was an informative story but very drawn out. Not too much to hold a reader’s interest.

Bible brought to life

Loved the narrators of the book, they really brought the scriptures to life. I didn't want to the book to end. I will checking out the author's other books.

Amazingly written.

One of the best books I have read. Knowing the stories well, Angela has the happy knack of giving the fictional fill in a reality that draws you into the time and place and enables you to be part of the truth of the Gospel.
Well done Angela Hunt.

ties in with the story of Jesus' ministry

Loved it. Runs along side the 3.5 years of Jesus' ministry. Lots of references to scripture. Can't wait to get the next book.

Well written

I was hesitant in places and at first about facts and experiences not revealed in Scripture or (as far as I know) even in the Apocrypha. In fact I skipped some parts and had planned to return it.
The story is written to give an opportunity to share many Old and New Testament texts, prophesies and events. I valued that greatly. I’ll probably listen again to brush up on some of these beautiful prophesies in the Bible.
The female narrator was excellent, with a lovely voice (and sounding like Hebrew is her native tongue). The male narrator was fine, but had a lesser role.
All round a valuable book and experience.
