I have recently read, and enjoyed tremendously, a book by a talented author Jewel Adams, who is also a very good friend of mine, and has been for many years. Her novella, The Gladiator's Day of Grace, happens during the time of Christ, and shortly after, during the earliest years of Christianity. Maximus is a freed Gladiator, and Andromeda is a young woman who has been a slave. Both have struggled to find their way in the world. It hasn't been easy, but they've both done the best they can. They've cared about each other for a long time, and Maximus would do anything for Andromeda. Still, when Andromeda starts to learn the teachings of Jesus, Maximus isn't sure what to think of them. He isn't sure he can learn how to forgive. But as he learns more, his heart begins to soften.

I enjoyed reading this book, and I think it's something that Christian readers who like sweet romance, would also enjoy!
