BLOOD OF A STONE:

When the young slave Demetrios kills his Roman master and flees with his mentor and fellow slave Elazar, he believes he's found freedom. But in creating a new life and a new identity, he quickly finds he's as enslaved to the secret of murdering his master as he was to the master himself.

A chance at love with a young woman is ruined by a glimpse into his mysterious past, and Demetrios and Elazar are forced to run again. Demetrios fears he is destined to be alone and wonders how he will ever find the freedom and love others enjoy if he cannot share the truth of who he is, or find forgiveness for his crimes. 

Demetrios soon discovers his trust in Elazar has been misplaced when Elazar reveals he's confessed the murder to a so-called prophet named Jesus. Enraged by Elazar's betrayal and desperate to keep his past a secret, Demetrios focuses his bitterness and fear on the prophet. He cannot allow this Jesus to alert the authorities, which could mean for Demetrios an arrest or execution. Demetrios must stop Jesus at all costs.

When a second chance at love arises and Demetrios sees first-hand the work of this prophet, Demetrios must reconsider everything he believes. Should he continue to fight to keep his secrets buried, or should he risk his life to tell the truth to the woman he loves and ask for forgiveness?

Set in first century Palestine, Blood of a Stone is a sweeping story of murder, betrayal, love, and the search for redemption.
