Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for The Scroll by Miriam Feinberg Vamosh, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Scroll
Author: Miriam Feinberg Vamosh
Publisher: The Toby Press
Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: January 19, 2019 (re-issue)
The Scroll is a multi-generational historical novel about the survivors of Masada. It draws from an authentic archaeological find: the divorce document of a woman named Miriam.
This fictionalized version of Miriam’s story begins in the year 73 CE on Masada’s final horrific day, where enemies within and without bring about the downfall of the last Jewish fortress. Its survivors are forced to choose between nation and family, and finally, between life and death. Will they learn the lessons of Masada’s downfall?
Although it tells of events that took place two millennia ago, The Scroll sheds extraordinary light on the complexities of modern Israeli society and the dilemmas faced by Israel and its leaders today.
I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. I found it to be confusing as it changed character perspective within the chapter. The rapid changing of scenes and time made it confusing as well. There were some violent parts in this book. I didn’t know about this sad time period of Jewish History before reading this book. It’s gives me a better understanding of this troubling time period.
I received this book from the publisher to give my honest review.
