When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones: He discovers an ancient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar and is filled with a magic once reserved for the Gods -- magic some Romans would kill for.
Night (Oprah's Book Club) by Elie Wiesel Every human must read this book. Heartbreaking. Hopeful. Enlightening. I'd always wondered why European Jews didn't leave before imprisonment. This answers that question and more. A gripping account of where God is in suffering.
