Summary
The story of the discovery of the True Cross, featuring one of the most important women in Christian history

Abandoned by her husband, in danger because of her faith, but determined to do what God calls her to, Empress Helena sets out on pilgrimage through the ancient landscapes of Caesarea and Judea. Here she is stalked by the menacing Roman assassin Severus. Yet she also meets those who would help her: the wise and wizened bishop Macarius; the rough-edged but kind-hearted sergeant Cratus, and the young soldier Anthony, a man who has lost everything.

Miracles seem to follow this humble but determined woman as she wins many over to the faith, and changes lives forever – including her own.

‘Davis is a master storyteller and his ability to tell an ancient tale in a contemporary style regularly leaves readers wanting more.’
Dave Milbrandt, author of Chasing Deception

‘[Bunn] does something few Christian fiction writers do . . . his stories open readers to a bigger multicultural and multireligious world . . . he always seems to surprise and lead into places readers don’t expect.’
Publishers Weekly

A prequel to The Fragment, also published by Marylebone House

[An] imaginative and captivating story.

- Methodist Recorder

It is best not to read this as real historical fiction, but relax and regard it as a means by which the author tells us some important truths, which he does superlatively well.
