Tax included.
It is 5 B.C., a year of turmoil. A brilliant new star shines in the heavens, glorious, stationary and mysterious. And Caesar Augustus now decrees that the Empire be taxed. Terentius and Bridicia are Celts living in Tarsus in Cilicia. Terentius is a gifted harpist who plays songs to the new star. Bridicia is a redheaded fish peddler. They discover love, but their joy is quickly threatened by a Druid’s curse and by a governor’s cunning. The Celts must flee, but these dangers relentlessly pursue them. The flight of the Celts takes them to Jerusalem in Judea. Yet King Herod’s kingdom offers no refuge; rather, it is mired in bloody politics. With just their wits and his music the Celts seem doomed, but salvation can come in amazing ways. The Bard of Bethlehem is a novel of history, intrigue and discovery that will keep you breathless to the last paragraph.
