We follow the slave Onesimus who schemes to be free only to get in trouble for his efforts. Over the course of the book, he learns what it means to really be free.
Interspersed with Onesimus' ongoing story are letters from the future that make you want to know the whole story and help you reflect on what already happened.

The story has just the right amount of suspense. I felt like I was right there with Onesimus, transported into the first century. I felt when he was overwhelmed as he arrived in a new city, I could almost taste his food, etc.

I read an online version of this book to give the author feedback. As a thank you, I received a paperback copy of the edited and printed book.
I want to read this updated version as well because I think I'd like it even better than the work-in-progress.
I already gave this book to a friend to read, and she liked it even better than she thought she would.
