Amora is a historical fiction with elements of Christian faith embodied in its structure. The story is based on events that actually took place in history. It is detailed and inclusive of historical figures that provide an insight into the Roman period and its society. It also emphasizes how God turns tragedy into triumphs.
The story begins with the half-ending part as Amora is condemned for her faith and is brought along with her 16-year-old slave to the arena. They are to be executed, and Amora pleads for mercy. The narrative then changes to eighteen years earlier and then explains everything about Amora, her husband, and their daughter.
I found the story to be well told. It demonstrated the power of forgiveness in such a profound and substantial way. The literature was described so that you could imagine yourself in that time era. The elements of faith were appreciated and were not preachy.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction and stories about the Christian Faith.
