Here are what a few reviewers have to say about The Thorn Bearer:
• "The historical details are wonderfully woven throughout the story and the setting so real I felt I was actually there. And the characters … even the one I didn't like had grabbed my heart by the end of the story. Wonderfully story-telling, a realistic faith journey, memorable prose and a dry wit that I appreciate very much all make this book one I won't soon forget."
— Cathy West, author of Yesterday's Tomorrow.
• "Author Pepper Basham knows how to pen a story that mesmerizes and transports her readers to another time. The depth of her characters and the redemption woven through a difficult topic puts her at the top of her craft. I can hardly wait to read more from this talented author!"
— Edie Melson, author of Fighting Fear, Winning the War at Home When your Soldier Leave for Battle
