The Centurion's Wife, by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke
Read, reviewed, and released in July-August, 2009
I finished reading this a few weeks ago. It was very interesting, a historical fiction set in the first century, after Jesus'crucifixion and resurrection, but before His ascension. The centurion is the one whose servant was healed by Jesus, related in the book of Matthew.
I enjoyed this book very much. It is Number 1 in the Acts of Faith series.
