Valeria's Cross ~ REVIEW

Kathy Macias and Susan Wales authored this Phenomenal Book titled Valerias Cross.

About the Book:

In the 3rd century, pampered Roman princess Valeria falls in love with Mauritius, captain of the Theban Legion. She sends him off to battle, where he suffers under the schemes of a notorious pagan general with an ambition for power and a lust for Valeria. In a scene based on true events, the evil Galerius kills Mauritius and his entire legion for their Christian faith. And in a shocking turn of events, the grieving Valeria is forced to become Galerius’ wife against her will. Never has a marriage been set up for such failure. Valeria loathes her new husband, but he seems to undergo a change of heart, adopting a child for her and giving her power and authority, and even love. She struggles with the commitment she knows she must keep, and the love she knows she will never find again.

My Review:

This is an amazing read! Valeria's life is one of royalty and servants. Yet, clearly, things are NOT as they seem, as you will see as each page turns. Valeria faces temptation, doubts, and suffers just like any common person would yet Valeria comes to find the ONE that no matter what she faces she will prevail! Valeria will inspire you to rise above your circumstances no matter how bleak they may seem and rely on the ONE who will provide ALL you need! I could not help but think of the Scripture in Philippians and the Message version says it best:

Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. Phil 4:13

I would encourage you to read Valerias Cross! You will NOT be disappointed!

Thank you Abingdon Press for providing this complimentary in return for my honest review! 5 stars for sure :)

I love your blog! The design is amazing. Thank you so much for the wonderful review of our book. And Cheryl, we hope this will be a movie. While we were writing the book, when we would write scenes, we'd say. "That's a movie."
