    I love this book It s not one that you come across everyday because it s old and is not well known I picked it up in a yard sale in high school and I ve read itthan twice There is, of course, a biblical theme to it based in the Old Testament It s a lovely fiction that maybe some would enjoy The romance starts off with a young, beautiful but stubborn Aramean girl whose hatred for a warrior and faithful follower of God, Johnathan, gradually turns into an unexpected love for him There a I love this book It s not one that you come across everyday because it s old and is not well known I picked it up in a yard sale in high school and I ve read itthan twice There is, of course, a biblical theme to it based in the Old Testament It s a lovely fiction that maybe some would enjoy The romance starts off with a young, beautiful but stubborn Aramean girl whose hatred for a warrior and faithful follower of God, Johnathan, gradually turns into an unexpected love for him There areseries to this which I haven t read, but it s my favorite so far.
