Voice in the Wind: Yes I’ll Call It Anti-Semitic

A Voice in the Wind, pp. 67-75Hey all! We're back to Hadassah today, but first I wanted to make a quick note about the last passage. There was nothing said about Arria evading a chaperone.

Voice in the Wind: How Not to Break Up

A Voice in the Wind, pp. 59-66Marcus is still at Antigonus' house, with Patronus and the rest. As Marcus is musing about the actions of Christians in the arena (at least half a century earlier than he should be), Arria enters the room.
