Living in first-century Jerusalem, Keziah is proud to be a law-abiding Jew right up until she's married off to an older priest. Hurt and angry, she decides to create her own rules that put her right in the way of an agenda-driven danger she's powerless to stop. No human hand can save her now. Besides, they're too busy raising to cast the first stone.
Loyal to Rome but ruing his decision to join the legions, Demetrius hates Judea until Keziah comes along. Doing nothing to stem his attraction to the seeming salvation she provides, he tries to save her from her abusive husband, only to end up putting her in grave danger and placing himself as his own love's executioner.
