The Catholic Faith. On Demand.
Awakening: A Crossroads in Time Book by Claudia McAdam
In this work of Biblical historical fiction, Ronni is a 21st-century American teenage girl who has lost her faith following the deaths of her father and brother, both of whom died saving the life of someone she doesn’t deem worthy. She can’t understand the concept of sacrifice—even Jesus’s death on the cross. Then one day, she wakes up 5,000 miles away from home...2,000 years in the past. How she got here, she doesn’t know. But she’s in Jerusalem, the week of the crucifixion of Jesus. She has three days to try to stop his death. The question is, can she do it? Should she? This young adult novel is appropriate for readers from middle-school through adult.
Age Range: 8 and up
