 Dive into the Roman era of history and mystery. PROCULA novel sports a wealth of researched historical facts intertwined with mystery and intrigue surrounding Pontius Pilate's wife PROCULA.

Set in Biblical times, Procula. a young girl, is raised by wealthy relatives in Rome. She marries Pontius Pilate, an Army officer, who is sent to Palestine as Emperor Tiberius’ personal representative to “keep the peace”. When Jesus (a popular Jewish rabbi from Nazareth) is jailed, Procula warns Pilate against involvement. He ignores her. Later, Pilate is summoned to Rome on false charges, but Procula manages their escape. This adventure story, based on historical research, recreates Biblical personalities. Born in a remote village, little is known of this woman until now.

     The world will never know how her influence could have altered the course of history. See how her own trials and tribulations influenced her life. And later positioned her into a seat of great power as wife to Pontius Pilate. Read for yourself as you take this remarkable journey into ancient Palestine to watch her life unfold. A sophisticated woman of means taunted by powerful imagery in her dreams. When a situation unfolded before Pilate, his wife quickly advised him to be cautious. Had she been more persistent, she may have been able to arrest the crucifixion. Later this caring woman of influence and power seeks sanctuary with her family in AEgyptus, in a small obscure city where they lived under assumed names. Isn't it time you discover the woman who may have changed history?
