The Good Aunt
by Jack A. Taylor

A young warrior woman somersaults off a horse with a dagger and javelin in hand, landing at Salome’s side and spinning her once again into the revolutionary cause and unresolved relationships and past conflicts. As the Romans continue their onslaught, the Zealots and Parthians fight back. Salome is caught up in the ensuing chaos where she’s reunited with her childhood friend and fellow freedom fighter, Nathaniel. Salome’s nephew, Yeshua, emerges as the new Messiah. He performs miracles, drawing the ire of Roman leaders. Salome’s sons and other followers flock around him, upsetting family dynamics and general peace. Salome is also swept up into the Messianic fervor, but still struggles to find her place amidst all the change. She and Nathaniel are woven together tighter by the marriage of their now-adult children and then by dual tragedies. Their lifelong friendship takes a new turn while the quest for goodness continues to consume Salome like a dragon. The final book of Salome’s trilogy, The Good Aunt continues her spirited journey in biblical times alongside the rise of Yeshua (Jesus). Salome comes to terms with the struggles that have curtailed her happiness for years, healing her relationships and learning to compromise and forgive. As sister to the Virgin Mary, Salome’s personal growth and love story come full circle, showing that redemption is always possible and that love, integrity, and perseverance will reign.
