Book Description:

In ancient Rome, a woman flees for her life.
Her enemies are those she once called ‘brother’.
Hidden beneath her blue cloak are secrets men will kill for.

Forgeries that prove the newly self-appointed bishops are not followers of the way, but pretenders who have seized power and will stop at nothing to shape this new religion to their own ends. Now, Julia – a woman who had once walked with Mary Magdalene and taught alongside Paul must preserve the legacy of the apostles in the face of terrifying danger.

Two thousand years later, classical archaeologists Valentina Vella and Erika Simone are tasked with advising the newly-elected Pope on the historical legacy of women in the early Christian period.

The women stumble across an ancient parchment buried deep in the Vatican archives, a document that has clearly been altered. They find themselves on the trail of a woman who may have been the first woman Bishop in the Catholic faith. To reveal Julia’s legacy will put them in the cross-hairs of a venomous Vatican battle for power and supremacy; to stay silent would make them complicit in an ancient heresy and would betray the teachings that Julia sacrificed her life to defend.

The Mystery of Julia Episcopa weaves seamlessly between modern day Rome and the politics of the Catholic church, and the times and life of a 1st century Roman noblewoman who rose to be a dominant force in the early Christian movement.

“Three women connected by two intertwined stories of treacherous political intrigues, ancient cover-ups, and savage vengeance.”

Pasta For Two

Author: Elia Alexander

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Free via Kindle Unlimited: Yes

Regular Price: $3.99
Today’s Price: $0.99

Book Description:

Everyday heroes dealing with love, passion, compassion, forgiveness, and their search for reconciliation.

In every one of its seven short tales, Pasta for Two captures gentle, heart-warming moments of love, loss, and everyday struggles with delicate precision and deep psychological insight. In this collection of soulful stories and novellas, Elia Alexander pits her readers with events that feel both familiar and peculiar, allowing them to share the most intimate world of the heroes and their reactions to the real and the imaginary.

A chance meeting between estranged cousins; a woman knitting magnificent sweaters for a mysterious girl; a mother making a desperate effort to reconnect with her daughter through their mutual love of classical music; a gray jacket that holds a special meaning for a number of people; a new resident threatens to change the routine of an elderly woman in assisted living; a university lecturer struggling to deal with her problematic career and crumbling family life; and in the titular novella, a reclusive introvert expressing his love for his date by making perfect pasta plates.

Odd and charming, gentle and heartwarming, honest and whimsical, Pasta for Two’s stories depict scenes from real life in their messy, confusing, and beautiful form. The dramatic plot seems to be only a background for the subjective ways in which the heroes perceive their life and the lives of others who are significant to them. Each story develops in several explicit and implicit layers of description, inviting the reader to uncover some puzzle and mystery.
