Boy with a secret (A)

Gill Jacobs | Faithfinders

ISBN: 9781846255229 | Day One Code: BWS5229


Julianna lives in Ephesus and works in the family workshop spinning thread.
When her father becomes very ill she is forced to dress as a boy in order to take the thread to sell in the market. There she meets a young Jew called Zak, who is a follower of The Way. She hides from him that she is a girl and so is able to travel to Athens and Corinth
in his company. As they travel, her belief in many gods is challenged as she learns about Jesus. They have many adventures and are caught up in Bible events until eventually she is forced to admit who she really is.


Gill Jacobs lives in Hampshire with her husband John. They have two grown up daughters and two grandsons. She has always enjoyed working with children both as leader of the youth work in her church and also as a Paediatric Occupational Therapist. Her own experience of coming to faith as a child and her understanding of child development has convinced her of the need to teach children the truth while they are young. Being married to a converted Jew has given her insights into Jewish thinking and culture.
