Judah’s Scepter and the Sacred Stone

D.A. Brittain. First Edition Design, $21.95 (346p) ISBN 978-1-5069-0229-6
In Brittain’s debut novel, the legend claiming the Stone Pillow used by Jacob in the Bible and the Stone of Scone used at British coronations are one and the same is true. Princess Teia, daughter of the biblical King Zedekiah, flees with the prophet Jeremiah and a group of refugees after Babylon lays siege to Jerusalem, taking Jacob’s stone with them. Eochaid Finn, son of the High King of Ireland, leads a seafaring expedition, crossing paths with Teia during a brief sojourn in Egypt. An immediate attraction develops, but the pair must overcome physical distance and religious differences if their relationship is to exist outside of their dreams. Intrigue, fierce battles, pirate attacks, treacherous alliances, and a quaint romantic dalliance ensue as the stone finds its way from Jerusalem to Ireland. Brittain seamlessly weaves historical fact, legend, and biblical references into an engrossing tale of faith and love. (BookLife)
