What was it like for Mariamne I, the beautiful and intelligent last Princess of the Maccabean Dynasty, to be the wife of King Herod the Great? What impact did his passionate obsession with her have on her life at the dawn of the Herodian Dynasty?
Who was King Herod the Great? What was at the root of his brutality and his take-no-prisoners ambition? Was he simply a monster or was he a complex and deeply flawed man whose visionary building projects left an indelible mark on Israel's horizon?
These are the questions that inspired me to research and write To Hold the Throne. I hope you enjoy reading it.
