This tale of faith tells the story of Miriam, a young Christian woman living in the Roman Empire during the first century, and Marcus, the Roman officer who desires to win her hand. Miriam's faith is continually strengthened by the Lord as she faces hardships and fiery trials. The historic events portrayed in Pearl Maiden culminate in the Roman siege and destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple in A.D. 70.
