About the Book:  

Anne Rice’s second book in her hugely ambitious and scrupulously researched life of Christ begins in the last winter of the ‘hidden years’, culminates with forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, and concludes with a miracle – the turning of water into wine at the marriage in Cana. In a vivid and moving narrative, Anne rice recreates that miraculous journey. 

In The Road to Cana we see Jesus – Yeshua Bar Joseph – during a winter of no rain, endless dust, and disruption in Judea. Whispers of a virgin birth have long surrounded Jesus. His brothers, his mother, his friends, wait for some sign of the path he will take, some with awe, others with impatience or incredulity. Both divine and human, he struggles with the demands of his family, the human need for love, and his overwhelming sense of destiny. 

Now in his thirtieth year, this quiet man of Nazareth emerges from his baptism in the river Jordan to confront his mission – and the Devil. He is urged to call on Israel to rise up and cast off the yoke of Rome. But he is a different and greater calling.
