Julia has everything money can buy...except for acceptance by either the Gentiles or the Jews. Her Greek father already has a wife and family, leaving Julia and her Hebrew mother second-class citizens. But when they are introduced to followers of the Way, they become part of that community of believers. Abigail's brother, Jacob, now a young man, is attempting to discover his own place as a Christian. He is concerned that being more serious about his faith means trading away the exhilaration of his current profession as a caravan guard. Hired by Julia's father to protect the wealthy merchant's caravans on the secretive "Frankincense Trail"--undercover transport of this highly valuable commodity--Jacob also passes letters and messages between various communities of believers. He is alarmed to find out that Julia, hardly more than a girl, is also a messenger. Can their immediate mistrust be put aside to finally bring their hearts together?

I absolutely loved this book!
I loved getting to read about Jacob’s life, his struggles with his faith, his desires and just his confusions as a normal young adult.
I really loved reading and learning about Julia and her faith in Jesus.
The chemistry and relationship forming between Jacob and Julia was beautifully written and just really drew you in while maintaining it perfectly pure.
I also liked that the book continued with the story of Abigail and her adorable daughter. I also really liked how the friendship and relationship between Abigail and Linux continued to develop in this book.
And lastly but certainly not least, I absolutely loved reading about Saul and the moment in which God changed his entire world and changed his views of everything. That was simply amazing to read.
