Throughout Asia, the tiger has long been a metaphorical creature of magnificent power, magic, tenacious will and independence. Born in the Year of the Tiger, Rachana’s undeniable symbolic life or death experiences prove that faith, belief, and the will to survive can prevail above all odds.

In what was one of the most appalling mass murders known to mankind, the Khmer Rouge inflicted evil upon the first class citizens of Cambodia from 1975-1979. Throughout the next gruesome four years of the Killing Fields, and even prior during the Cambodian Civil War, nearly a quarter of the entire country’s population was lost from starvation, torture, insurmountable tragedy, disease, and blatant atrocities.

Along with her beloved mother and two young daughters, Rachana experiences both the best and worst of mankind. Through insurmountable adversities, this tearfully authentic and courageous story will take you on a compelling pursuit of freedom, surprising sacrifices and life or death decisions to be made along…

DESCRIPTION:

A madman who murders his way into power lusts for ever-greater glory and domination. A capital city awash with corruption, sensuality, and political intrigue is at the flash point. And caught between the crushing currents of history are a new but growing religious group known as the followers of The Way. Award-winning historian and best-selling author Paul L. Maier has created a compelling style of documentary fiction, using only known historical events and persons to bring to life first-century Rome in all its excess, treachery, and insanity. This is the Rome that the apostle Paul visits, where he’s placed on trial, and which is forever changed by his testimony and witness.

On approach to the house where she and her husband will live, Florina spies a woman sitting on the steps and smoking a cigarette.

“You must be Redmond’s new wife,” the woman says. “All of Poinsettia’s been talking about you.” Failing to introduce herself, the woman stands, flicks cigarette buts behind the shrubbery, and proceeds into what will become Florina’s new home.

The woman’s uncanny knowledge of the space that Florina will inhabit with her new husband leaves Florina feeling more than ill at ease.

Following the benediction at Sunday services, Florina witnesses the woman she will come to know as Agnes, caress Redmond’s cheek. The look in Redmond’s eyes betrays longing.
