Title: The Bronze Bow
Author: Elizabeth George Speare
Comments: An excellently well written work of historical fiction set during the time of Jesus. It follows the story of a young boy who harbours deap hatred for the occupying Roman forces. The Bronze Bow is both exciting and informative, albeit a little slow moving to begin with. With likeable characters and a unique story-line, this book was a pleasure to read.
I have alway enjoyed historical novels set during this period and The Bronze Bow does not disappoint.
