In Search of My Heart
by Carol Amon McGehe and Lawrence Kemp McGehe

Overview


Miriam grows up in the loving arms of her strict religious family in first-century Israel. Tender-hearted yet strong, Miriam finds great difficulty in suppressing her opinions, particularly about the Romans who occupy her village. Mama repeatedly cautions her not to rush too quickly into the mysterious parts of life she does not yet understand, but Miriam has definite views regarding her life and a strong desire for adventure.

When tragedy enters her young life, bitterness and disillusionment replace the joy she has always known. Through a series of events intertwined with Biblical accounts, Miriam's path converges with scriptural women who have met the Messiah. As she joins the women traveling with Jesus and his disciples, her long-held beliefs are challenged.

This compelling story of love overcoming loss, and enduring faith conquering doubt and unbelief, transcends time. Miriam helps us see ourselves in these ageless, yet very personal issues.
