I just finished reading Angelica, You Have Chosen Well by Aimee Marie Bejarano, and my review follows the book blurb found on Amazon.
“One prophetic night of birth, shakes and shapes history forever as we know it.
The life of a beautiful girl from Bethlehem, born that same prophetic night as Jesus, faces her final end when she is forced to decide either renounce Jesus and live or acknowledge Him and die.
Angelica was arrested and imprisoned, by Saul of Tarsus, for preaching on the narrow streets of Jerusalem. While awaiting a horrible death of stoning, she decides to write her life’s story which begins in Bethlehem when her father an inn keeper met a young couple one night. He had no room in the inn. All he had to offer them was a stable. Follow her on the journey of her life as she meets Bible characters and sees things her innocent eyes have never seen before.
Will Angelica’s life mission end in a prison cell…will she choose life or will she choose death for the One she loves?
This novel will make you walk away a believer and broken questioning the very core of your being. Are you brave enough to read it?
(New edition as of April 2017! Older customers may not have the newest revision.) Blessings to you readers!”
I was glued to this book from the start of my reading! I am a Christian, and I loved how the author wove into this book such an inspiring character as Anjelica, and her undying faith in the Lord Jesus. If you are Christian, read this book. The character of Anjelica remained courageous in her faith, even when starved and being stoned. The author did a great job weaving in parts from the Bible, and Jesus birth, life, crucifixion, death, and power of Jesus’ resurrection. All of this mixed in well with a fictional side to the narrative. This book is worth reading more than once and I rate it five stars!
