Book Review The Captive’s Crown by Olusola Sophia Anyanwu

The Captive’s Crown: A story of inclusion, diversity and redemption by Olusola Sophia Anyanwu is biblical fiction. It contains some adult content.

The main protagonist is the woman who washed Jesus feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. There are many other characters (most of them fictional) from the time of Jesus’ ministry on earth. The story is told imaginatively in Sophia’s unique style.

Sophia (who is a member of the Association of Christian Writers as I am) asked me to read and review this book. She hoped it would be a blessing to me. It contains many quotations from the Bible and some interludes where we are given a glimpse of the activity of God and the angels in heaven. These are indeed a blessing. The story is gripping, with many lives changed through encounters with Jesus and his followers.

The Captive’s Crown is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.
