About the Book



When a wedding guest tells Tasmin to have the servants fill the pitchers with water, she reluctantly obeys and is amazed when it turns into the finest wine ever tasted in Cana. But when her twin brother, Thomas, impulsively chooses to follow the Teacher from Nazareth, she decides to follow the group and do whatever she must to bring her brother home.



Book Synopsis



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.



From the Back Cover



How Will Walking in Yeshua's Footsteps
Forever Change Her Life?

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, the twins argue bitterly. Tasmin refuses to be abandoned or to let her brother be taken in by a magician-prophet. When he departs anyway, she decides to follow the Nazarene's group, aided by Jude, younger brother to Yeshua of Nazareth, and do whatever she must to mend the fractured relationship, reveal the truth, and bring her brother home.

"Any reader of biblical fiction knows the name Angela Hunt; she's one of the stars of the genre, and you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy her books. She writes with conviction, believability, and a strong sense of time and place, as well as a good understanding of human nature. Daughter of Cana is another excellent novel from her."--Historical Novels Review

Outstanding Biblical Fiction

The Daughter of Cana is book one in the Jerusalem Road series by Angela Hunt. This is such a good book. It is so well written I had to keep reminding myself it was a fictional writing based on Biblical facts. The story starts in 27 A.D. with Thomas and his twin sister, Tasmin, being hired to do a wedding in Cana. More guests arrive at the wedding than planned for. Some of them are Mary of Nazareth and her family. Her oldest son, Yeshua (Jesus) is there and several men join him and follow him through his next three years. Thomas is one of these men. Through the story we see what it might have been for those who knew Yeshua and his disciples' families. We see the struggles the carpenter's family went through without having him there to do the intricate work only he is skilled with. We see Thomas' family struggle to keep up with the fruit trees, especially when his father can no longer tend to them. We also see how the people of the time do not understand what Yeshua is saying. I especially appreciate the question and answer part after the story, where the author points out the extensive research she has done to give as accurate accounting as possible. She gives bible verses that she used for naming characters. I would highly recommend this story for anyone who enjoys reading Biblical Fiction. I received an e book copy of this book through NetGalley. This is my honest review.
