Revised and updated from the original, Christy-award finalist "Shadow of Colossus."

As a courtesan, Tessa of Delos enjoyed unparalleled luxury and influence. But even in the grand palaces of Rhodes, she felt herself a prisoner.

On the island of Rhodes, 227 BC, Tessa of Delos has served for ten years as a hetaira--a high-priced Greek courtesan--to a wealthy politician. In that time, she's lived in luxury, but as a virtual prisoner, serving at her master's whim. Though intelligent and beautiful, Tessa has learned to numb herself to all desires for freedom and love.

But when her owner meets a violent death, Tessa is given the chance to be free--if she can hide the truth of his death and maintain a masquerade until escape is possible. She joins forces with unlikely allies--a Hebrew houseservant named Simeon and Nikos, a seafarer who wants to work in the house of Tessa's owner.

As Tessa seeks freedom for herself and for those she is beginning to love, forces collide that will literally shatter the island's peace, bringing even the mighty statue of Rhodes, Colossus, to its knees.

A powerful story showing how the love of God can transform and bring back to life a soul jaded by sin and grief.
