Pearl Maiden: A Tale of the Fall of Jerusalem
Sir H. Rider Haggard, the famous author of King Solomon's Mines, wrote this classic adventure novel about a young Christian woman who grew up in a Roman Empire during the first century. As this woman faces hardship and numerous fiery trials, her faith is strengthened by the Lord. The climax of the novel is when she ends up in Jerusalem during the Roman siege and subsequent destruction of the city in 70 A.D.

Superb readUser Review - Christianbook.com
A friend recommended this book to me and I found it to be a riveting story. A bit slow in the beginning, as you sort out the characters and get into the time period but Oh! so worth it. This book is a beautiful story for anyone, but especially for your daughters (not too young as it was a hard time period!), to encourage them to wait for God's best despite feelings and emotions.
Review: Pearl MaidenUser Review - Christianbook.com
Pearl Maiden is a tale of courage and bravery set in the faith-testing times during the destruction of Jerusalem and 70 A.D. Miriam's courage is sorely tried as she is mercilessly persecuted for her faith in Jesus.Her heart is also yearning for a man she can't marry because he isn't a Christian.A story which will enthrall and fascinate all ages.Though there is some violence this book is a must read for Christians and non-Christians alike.Two thumbs up for CLP and H. Rider Haggard!
