Anne Baxter Campbell Has Done It Again

Anne Baxter Campbell has paired with Helping Hands Press to bring you her second book in THE TRUTH TRILOGY ~ MARCUS VARITOR, CENTURION.

 Anne Baxter Campbell is a wife, mother, and grandmother who loves her Lord, her family, and writing. She and her husband, one very small dog, and one overweight cat live in north central California.

Anne is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers  ~ my first contact with this warm, inviting, author was at a My Book Therapy Pizza Party ~ during one of the ACFW Conferences. I've had the privilege to do some critique and review work for Anne on her first book of the Truth Trilogy and now I have the pleasure of introducing her second book to you, the reader.


Marcus, son of Senator Decimus Varitor, is a deconaus in the Roman cohort in Jerusalem. His tribune hints at a promotion to centurion if Marcus can bring in Barabbas. There are really only two things Marcus really wants - to be a centurion and to win the love of an Egyptian girl. 

When Meskhanet is sent to Rome on a slave ship and Marcus is captured by the very brigand he's supposed to apprehend, those hopes of his may both evaporate faster than a small puddle under the hot desert sun.

This exciting book can be read as a stand-alone novel or in conjunction with Book One ~ The Roman's Quest ~ both take place in the First Century and are packed with action and travel ~ from Jerusalem to Rome and includes slave ships, heroes and brigands. 
Anne's characters are richly and deeply portrayed  and the settings are word-paintings extraordinaire.
