Salome PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Salome free pdf If I'd never hoped to live in a world of goodness and truth--if the priestess of Diana, then Leander, and Joanna, hadn't shown me glimpses of it--maybe I wouldn't have minded being shut out of it. Maybe the preacher's death wouldn't have trapped me in a dungeon, the dungeon of my own self. Her name is Salome. You may think you know her story--how her seductive Dance of the Seven Veils led to the beheading of John the Baptist. But you don't know it from her side. You don't know how a web of betrayal, and greed, and desire was spun around an innocent teenage girl. How she came to doubt her own mother. How she searched for a friend in an unfamiliar land. And how she walked into a trap that changed the course of history. This is Salome's story, in her own words. Listen, and learn of strength, of power, of loyalty--and of death. From the Hardcover edition.
