Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

This is an incredible book about Biblical history. Even though it's fiction, the author did a fantastic research job. Tamar, a Hebrew slave, vows to remain loyal to her God and to herself. Through many twists and turns, Tamar and Tiberius journey through a life torn by mistrust, finding love and staying true to the One who created them. An exciting story from page one, as Tamar and Tiberius fight for their lives as assassins and enemies chase them. Not one to give up, Tiberius seeks Tamar's love but he also battles trying to remain loyal to those in command over him.

This is a story of pure bliss, excitement and tenderness, but yet, loyalty and trust are forerunners as two people seek to serve the Lord. It is a story for those who love Biblical fiction. No Greater Love is a 5 star keeper on my bookshelf!

Oh my I love this book. I am not a book reader and I swallowed every page of this book as though it was my last meal. I could picture every scene in my mind and it just took me there every day. I was so sad when I reached the last page. Thanks for making me a new love of books.


I really enjoyed this book. The description of the people and places made me feel like I was right there.

Nancy Schatz

This book was very captivating with great character development. Actually I did not put the book down until I finished it. Now I am ready for the sequel.

Mary Jane

This book makes me truly grateful that I am living in the 21st century as I grasped what a hard life women lead in Rome, whether a slave or a women of wealth. There are great lessons about how money and power don't equate to contentment, happiness, and joy. 'No Greater Love' is an easy read that left me wanting more.

From the very first chapter until the end of the book, I was captivated and could not put the book down. The historical accuracy is so amazing, that you feel like you are living back in the day. This book will appeal to a broad audience. If you are looking for a book that has historical fiction and Inspiration romance, than you will want to include No Greater Love to your must read book list. The authors obviously did her homework with the period and the charters come to life. Can't wait for the sequel.

This was such an impressive debut novel. The storyline was filled with so much romance and anticipation that it was difficult to quit reading. No Greater Love demonstrates how true love is the key to true happiness despite an adverse environment. I cannot wait to read the sequel!
