A Review: Rebekah's Treasure by Sylvia Bambola




The Book:
FIRST PLACE WINNER FOR ADULT FICTION IN THE FLORIDA STATE 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.

The Author:

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’s Fire, 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.
