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.
Sylvia Bambola is the awarding winning author of six novels. She was born in Romania but lived her early years in Germany. At age seven she relocated with her adopted military family and saw the Statue of Liberty and America for the first time. But the memory of those years in Germany lingered and was the inspiration behind her second novel, Refiner’s Fire, which won a Silver Angel Award, and was a Christy Finalist. Her first book, A Vessel of Honor (under the pen name Margaret Miller), was published by her own publishing house that she and her husband opened. The book was well received by reviewers, garnering a Small Press Editor’s Choice Award and was seriously considered for production as a television movie.
She currently lives in sunny Florida and has two grown children. She’s been a guest speaker at Women’s Aglow and various church functions, is a Bible study teacher at her church, loves gardening and is learning to play the guitar.
