An epic story of revolution and drama, My Husband, Bar Kokhba is told through the narrative and letters of Michal, the young aristocrat, who, despite her grandfatherA s warning, marries Shimeon bar Kosiva, later to become known as Bar Kokhba, leader of the greatest revolution against the Romans. This latest work of historical fiction from the author of Hanina My Son delves into the life and times of this fiery revolutionary, shedding a light on the fascinating historical figure along with the Roman Emperor Hadrian and Rabbi Akiva, the great Talmudic sage that helped spark the Bar Kokhba revolution. Brilliantly describing one of the most exciting eras in Jewish history, Sanders illustrates the irreconcilable worldviews of the "enlightened" Roman Empire and the Jewish people, stubbornly faithful to its God. My Husband, Bar Kokhba describes a life and journey of love and sorrow, revolutions and wars, victory and defeat."
