Announcing Our Summer Book Club Selection & Giveaway

I am thrilled to announce our latest book club selection:

(Click the link above for ordering information.)

Usually I read all of our book club selections before they are announced, but I heard such glowing reviews of The Master's Wall that without reading the first page I knew it would be a perfect choice. So I am reading this selection right along with the rest of our group, and it is wonderful! 

After watching Roman soldiers drag his parents away to their death, David, a young Hebrew, is sold and enslaved to serve at a villa outside of Rome. As David trains to become a skilled fighter, he works hard to please his master and hopes to earn his freedom. However, an opportunity to escape tempts him with its whispering call. Freedom beckons, but invisible chains hold him captive to the master's granddaughter, an innocent girl with a fiery spirit. David vows to protect Alethea from his master, the murderous patriarch, and contrives a daring plan—sacrifice his own life to save hers.

G.A. Lewis of Summit Book Reviews enthuses, "This is a keeper. Ms. Rog skillfully blends coming-of-age, social inequity and tested faith into a delightful, heart-rending tale of courage, failure and redemption."

Author Robert Liparulo says, "It’s a grand thing to find an intriguing story told by a talented storyteller, and that’s just what we have in The Master’s Wall by Sandi Rog. This story has it all: ancient Rome, authentically depicted; a hero worth rooting for and a feisty, charming heroine—all flowing through a rousting tale beautifully spun. Rog—and every reader—has a winner with this one."

Author Tamera Alexander calls the book "Powerful, faith-challenging, epic in nature."
