    One Reply to “The Slave-girl from Jerusalem”

    1. This is a great book which leads you from Ostia to Laurentum to Ostia etc. My favourite part was the end which is a big twist I didn't expect. I enjoyed every moment of it.

    2. I have been a long-term fan of this series since I was about 10 years old. As a series, it is a wonderful set of mysteries filled with historical facts and exciting circumstances that any young Reader would love. There are certain volumes that are not entirely appropriate for the intended age group, and as the series has progressed, the stories have not been as engaging as earlier installments.The Slave-Girl from Jerusalem - the 13th book in this series - is one of the less enchanting mysteries [...]

    3. Ein klassischer Gerichtshofkrimi, in der Art von "Der Regenmacher" und "Der Klient". Man lernt in diesem Band viel über die Eroberung Jerusalems durch die Römer und über das rmömische Rechts und Gerichtssystem.Flavias und Floppys Beziehung entwickelt sich auch weiter und dann passiert noch ein Unglück, welches für alle Beteiligten Folgen hat.Auch in diesem Buch zwigt Caroline Lawrence ein Mal mehr, dass sie keine Skupel hat, mühevoll aufgebaute Charaktäre zu töten, wenn es für die Gesc [...]

    4. This was a great book. It had a great mystery, but the author also combined a well balanced amount of description. This book was a real mystery, compare to others, that are just adventures. There were just enough characters to have enough suspects, and not have too many to follow. However, my most favorite part of this book was the court case! The Romans take the who-dun-it to court, and guess what the "best technique is" rhetoric! In this book, they describe the lawyers rhetoric, and hand gestu [...]

    5. A beautiful, melancholic and cathartic episode in the series: I cannot recall crying as much since TFIOS, Allegiant, Clockwork Princess et al- a true indicator of my emotional attachment to these multifaceted characters: the redemptive story that encircled Jonathan had a wonderfully primitive touch of Shakespearean heroic tragedy and truly resulted in a sensitive, emotionally charged climax. The conspiratorial elements to the mystery also really engaged me and I enjoyed the opportunity to learn [...]

    6. A childhood friend of Miriam's was recently freed in secret by her owner, but then he dies and so does the only witness to the manumission. Then the young woman, Hephzibah, is accused of those deaths and another one. She's defended by Gaius Valerius Flaccus, aka Floppy, one of Flavia's friends from a previous adventure. During the events of this book, all four of the children write their own wills and we learn a lot about the Roman legal system.

    7. Lots of twists and surprises. These historical mysteries are really entertaining while highlighting lots of famous historical figures and customs. The emotional content is awfully heavy considering that these books are classed a "juvenille"--I place them on my YA shelf for this reason. I'm glad to have finally gotten this volume via ILL; now I can continue the series which my library has in stock!

    8. Flavia and her friends are called to court to help Flaccus with a court case. He is defending a slave-girl called Hepzibah who has been framed as a murderess. Miriam gives birth to two baby boys, but (view spoiler)[Miriam dies in childbirth. (hide spoiler)]I loved this book. It was so in depth, and wasn't lacking any sort of detail. If you asked me what was wrong with, it's fact that it's impossible to put down.

    9. Caroline Lawrence continues to not hold back in her portrayal of the Roman times. In this book a major character dies and once again I am thankful to not live in that era when medicine was so primitive and life was lost so easily. But I also loved the growing relationship between Flavia and Flaccus, as well as the detailed explanation of rhetoric and oratory. Highly recommended.

    10. The Slave-Girl from Jerusalem is my favourite Roman Mysteries book. It's so powerful and sad. It has a really strong effect on you and stays with you forever.I really need to re-read Roman Mysteries after I've finished The Hunger Games. It's an amazing and beautiful series.

    11. I'm loving all of the ancient Roman oration explanations, and yes! - my favorite Flaccus is back. WTF??!! Miriam DIES!!!??? Just!

    12. This installment focuses on the Roman legal system & the traditions of rhetoric & public speaking. Very interesting, & the mystery is engrossing as well.

    13. I love the Roman mysteries series! 4 friends that have to solve mysteries in Rome! I really like this one!

    14. Got diverted from Appeasement! Roman Mysteries 13. This time the historical bit is about the Roman legal system and how to plead a case in court.

    15. I have struggled to like some of the characters in some of these books, but I did appreciate this one a lot more than some others. The ending was a bit of a tear jerker.

    16. The series of young people's mysteries this is part of is enjoyable to read, as well as being clearly educational. Ancient Rome, and a Jewish family that are early Christians.

    17. Lawrence really outdid herself with this one – excellent, and very moving at the end. I loved the look at Roman law courts and the practice of rhetoric.
