Miriam, a widow in Judea, has only one hope for survival: she must go to Capernaum and live as a beggar.

On her way to the city, she is viciously attacked and left for dead. A leper, an unlikely and dangerous hero, saves her life but Miriam’s journey has only begun. Miriam’s resilience and faith are tested again and again.

Meeting unlikely friends along the way, Miriam’s path winds from Capernaum to the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem. As she searches for friends and security, she eventually meets a man named Jesus of Nazareth.

By His miracles and teaching, Miriam and her friends finally find something to believe in. But can they overcome the doubt and treachery that lurks in Jerusalem?

Realistic friendships, love interests, conflict, and bonding friendships await in Of Friends and Followers, historical fiction from author S.A. Jewell. 

Of Friends and Followers transports readers into history to experience what it could have been like to live in the life and time of Jesus.
