The Good Wife
by Jack A Taylor

An arrow narrowly misses Salome but prods her into rescuing a girl from a Roman centurion and pulls her back into intrigue that she tried to leave behind. Once again, she wrestles with conflicting desires: obeying and honoring her family, sabotaging the Romans, and helping the Zealots and Parthians. She also continues to fight her feelings for old flame Nathaniel. Salome is reconnected with Nathaniel when she becomes a secret messenger for the Zealots. Nathaniel also continues to support the cause against the Romans, and as he and Salome cross paths in Nazareth, they rekindle a deep friendship while their marriages bring little comfort— and Salome still struggles with the pressure to be good in order to be loved. Now a mature woman and mother with a stronger sense of identity, Salome faces questions of faith and family she once tried to ignore. As she and Nathaniel navigate their own regrets and dreams, loyalties are tested and tensions mount in the community as new Messianic figures arise in revolt against the brutal Roman regime. A larger battle for freedom rages as Salome and Nathaniel become mentors and gain more profound perspectives of each other. The Good Wife is the second book in a trilogy that’s set in biblical times yet has universal and modern-day relevance. From shame, fear, and regret to love, integrity, and perseverance, Salome continues on a path where love is not necessarily tied to goodness.

Jack A. Taylor continues to develop the story of one of the bible’s lesser-known characters, Salome, who he first introduced in The Good Sister. As in the first book of this trilogy, Taylor weaves in lessons that he’s used to help people in his long career as a pastor and counselor. With a PhD in counseling and three masters degrees, he’s studied biblical history for 40 years, traveled extensively in Galilee, and written eight multi-award-winning books set in this era and region, including The Cross Maker, the Word Guild Historical Novel of the Year in 2020. He lives in Vancouver, Canada, with his wife, Gayle, and a retinue of tropical fish. For more, go to
