This week we are featuring Christian YA author of inspirational, historical fiction and paranormal thriller/horror novels Aimée Marie Bejerano and her book Angelica: You Have Chosen Well.
But before we take upon the quest of learning about Aimee’s book, let us find out what is her favorite drink.
I’m a huge diet Coke lover. I started drinking it to help with chalky mouth from my medication, lol. Now, if you’re talking about an adult beverage, I don’t do social drinking or drink on a regular basis unless it’s according to
1 Timothy 5:23: “Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.” King James Version (KJV)
This basically means, if you have sickness in your stomach or other infirmities, to have a LITTLE wine to help. That’s precisely what I do. I have chronic digestion issues, diverticulitis and sour stomach. I also have chronic pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. So, according to God’s word, I drink a little wine to help, not to get a buzz or to get drunk. The one wine that helps me the most, is chilled Manischewitz wine. I put a lot of ice into it, I know this sounds strange, but it’s a very sweet wine. I only need a tiny amount and just as the Bible says, it completely helps my stomach or my body. I started drinking it probably over 10 years ago when my mother reminded me of the Bible verse and encouraged me to have a little to help. I’m thankful she did because it does help me quite a bit lol.
So let us grab a little glass of Manishewitz wine or a Diet Coke (for those who would rather abstain for tonight, and dive right into the pages of Aimée Marie Bejerano‘s book Angelica: You Have Chosen Well:
“There are crucial decisions Angelica must make regarding her life and purpose.”
“Will she expire in a jail cell? Will she select death for the One she loves?”
“Aimee’s descriptions of the era are done so well that you will feel like you are right there with Angelica. At times I was bold with her and other times, well most of the time, I wished I was as courageous in the Lord as Angelica. Don’t miss out on this truly inspirational read, geared toward introducing a very personal relationship with Christ as well as encouraging one in their faith to stand up for him no matter what life may bring.”- Victoria Simcox

This novel will make you walk away a believer and broken questioning the very core of your being. Are you brave enough to read it?
Jesus has already suffered the ultimate crucifixion. Rising again causes fear in the heart of the King, jealous of any arrival of a so-called “new king”.
Jerusalem is in utter mayhem, full of soldiers and stampeding horses, a complete panic. Those who believe in Jesus are arrested, imprisoned, and put to death by Saul of Tarsus. He zealously persecutes the church, seizing men and women, called the ‘followers’ or ‘Christians’ for causing uproar. The uproar, telling people about Jesus Christ, the One many speak of, Who was dead and His body stolen. The Christians however, faithful to Jesus, know better.
Early one dusky morning, a man saunters down a steep, stony staircase leading into a cold, underground prison where the walls seep of water. A wretched, lingering scent reeks of death throughout the dark, damp and brisk prison. Its walls hold the memory of those dying and having perished inside the grey and black encumbrance.
At the end of the stairs sits a wooden chair and a small, round table where a candle, dripping of wax, remains lit. The only light illuminates throughout the darkened prison. The man passes by the cells, to the right and left, holding men and women, who will be put to death for their crimes. Their only crime is to preach Jesus Christ. The prisoners sing songs to the Lord, while many others pray, fearfully eyeing the man who passes their cell. Thoughts prick their mind, “Am I next?” His armor clinks and his sandals sweep across the hard, stoned floor until he finally stops at the last cell of the prison. Disdainfully, he looks down on one prisoner.
“Woman, I have what you sent for.” Speaking abruptly and callously, there stands the prison guard, dressed in red and gold armor. He leers at the young woman through the cell bars. She lies on a bed of hay, her legs tucked tightly to her bosom. Her arms are crossed as she sleeps. Struggling to keep warm, her eyes barely open, from sheer exhaustion.
The woman of fair complexion snuggles, with a head wrap. She wears an off-white gown with a colored, striped sash. In an unlit cell, lying in a puddle of putrid water, her hair shines like the sun, in long ringlets. Her sky blue eyes distract from the obvious dirt and grime staining her body and clothing.
