FIRST PLACE WINNER FOR ADULT FICTION IN THE FLORIDASTATE ASSOCIATION NATIONAL LEAGUE OF
AMERICAN PEN WOMEN
Forced to flee
war-torn Jerusalem in 70 A.D., Rebekah and her
husband, Ethan, each take something of value:
Rebekah, the cup of the Last Supper; Ethan, a copper scroll detailing
the whereabouts of a vast Temple
treasure. Ahead, separation and danger face them as each tries to survive. But
it’s not only external forces that could keep them apart forever but internal
ones as they struggle to discover where their true treasure lies. The Review:
From the streets of Jerusalem
to the shores of Galilee, life’s brutal following Christ’s death. It’s hard to
distinguish friend from foe. War rages and family’s pushed to the side.
Rebekah’s Treasure captures history
in a pragmatic manner and sends the reader back in time. The days of the Roman
Empire and the miracles of the Almighty leap from the pages as Sylvia Bambola
pens an amazing tale of a family torn apart then pieced back together.
Bambola provides the story with character and biblical
strength giving it support. A true pleasure to read, I give this book five
stars. Awesome job, Ms. Bambola.
Ms. Bambola's giving away a free copy of her book!

Born in Romania
in 1945, Sylvia Bambola lived her early years in Germany. At seven she relocated
with her adopted family and saw the Statue of Liberty and America for the
first time. But the memory of those years in Germany inspired her to write Refiner’sFire, which won a Silver Angel Award, and was a Christy Finalist.
Her frequent moves as an “army brat” gave her an opportunity to see America and
fall in love with her new country. Bambola has authored six novels, has two
grown children, teaches women’s Bible studies, and is learning the guitar.
