In A.D. 66, Palestine rebelled against the authority and arrogance of oppressive Roman rule. Unlikely as it was, and impossible as it was to succeed, it happened. In the spring of A.D. 70, Titus Vespasianus, son of Vespasian, the emperor of Rome, marched to Jerusalem with his legions to reestablish Roman control over the city. Titus came to the city and found an old friend who was no longer his friend. His name was Simon Gioras, and he led the Zealots, the implacable opponents of Rome. Two men, once friends, are caught up in changing times and loyalties. The war changed them both; forever. It may have destroyed them both. Not one Stone Upon Another is a novel and a story of that struggle that changed the history not only of two friends, but of the Jewish people, and therefore the world. John Prescott Spent most of his adult life in deep South Texas, very near the U.S.-Mexican border. He presently lives in central New York with his wife and a little dog named Mia. He has retired from two professions; he's a retired pharmacist, and a retired CPA. He enjoys travel and writing; he has no plans to retire from writing.
