Well this was a steaming pile of pooSo in the Bible there is one unnamed mention of Pilate's wife PW as I will now refer to her was later named Claudia by someone in 1619 so yeah 1600 years later get a nameSo Antoinette May decides that Claudia was from the Claudia house family of Julius Caesar EDITED Actually although his fam is often referred to as the Julio Claudio family Claudia would have been only related to Tiberius the son of Livia by her first marriage not to Julius's family and pretty much makes up a huge twisted and chaotic story about her Isis and Pilate and Tiberius and NeroYou know what would have helped her reading ANY book about Roman culture Pick one ANY ONE ETA For one thing daughters didn't get really their own names They were just given the feminine of their family's name with an ordinal of some sort Sometimes a nickname That's why you have a plethora of Julias and Agrippinas There's so many omigod historical inaccuracies in this book that it honestly makes your head ache Then the plot is just dumb Really dumb And wowPW becomes an acolyte for Isis a Roman socialite a mistress of a gladiator oh and stand in for Ariadne during a seriously whacked out Dionysus mystery that only existed for salacious details It's just a bad book Really really bad Turns out the author writes books on clairvoyants before writing her first novel I hope she saw this review coming


Te's Wife eBook #210 passion Yet it is the ambitious magistrate Pontius Pilate who intrigues the impressionable young woman she becomes and Claudia finds her way into his arms by means of a mysterious ancient magic Pilate is her grand destiny leading her to Judaea and plunging her into a seething cauldron of open rebellion But follo. I thoroughly enjoyed the history in this book it pieced together some religious events for me that were previously vague I think this book is about 80% historically accurate the story created around it is a little weak but interesting nonethelessClaudia the main character is the daughter of Roman Empire royalty She posesses the gift of sight Claudia's visions range from vividly detailed and informative to almost nonexistent and the changing level of detail in places and characters give Claudia's world a similar sense of contrast between great detail and sketchy unrealityI found Pilate's Wife to be enjoyable but not exceptional However as an exploration of women's lives and roles in the first century Roman Empire it was uite fascinating

Pilate's Wife A Novel of the Roman EmpireA daughter of privilege in the most A Novel PDF #8608 powerful empire the world has ever known Claudia has a uniue and disturbing gift her dreams have an uncanny way of coming true As a rebellious child seated beside the tyrannical Roman Emperor Tiberius she first spies the powerful gladiator who will ultimately be her one true Pila. Okay if this woman did so much historical research why does she get the small things wrong Stuff like the old chestnut about thumbs down meaning to kill the losing gladiator when modern scholars are pretty sure it's the opposite She even gets the way Roman names were used wrong she uses Procula as if it were a last namePious Christians will recoil at her Mary Magdalene as Jesus's wife bit but what bothers me is the way she picks and choses her history and invents bits to fit her plot And Claudia herself is not a consistent character one moment she is a determined young woman the next a fluttering ninnyEntertaining but not exactly deep literature
