Product Description

Product Description

On an archaeological expedition, Bayla Gideon, is widowed by a supernatural force and branded with the Hand of Miriam or Knowing Eye. Threatened by evil, she awakens the golem; a mythical man of clay, who protected the Jewish community over three centuries ago.
The golem, Gesher, is surprised. Freedom –by a beautiful, enchanting woman. His desire is to return to the celestial spheres and regain his status as an avenging angel. Yet, Bayla challenges his mind, body and soul. Would he risk his return to the heavens for her?
Besides, dealing with the otherkind, mad inventors and an unrelenting matchmaking aunt, Bayla is equally determined to resist her steamy attraction to the striking fallen angel.
Thrust into a malevolent war, which includes facing Jack the Ripper, they must resist the magnetic pull toward each other, while protecting the world from encroaching evil.

'Hand of Miriam' is the story of Bayla, a woman with a thirst for adventure who becomes a widow and is branded with a knowing eye while on an archaeological expedition. She is thrown into a world of supernatural danger, and awakens a golem as protection.

This is a really powerful read with a steamy romance at its heart. I loved the main characters, they were so vividly depicted and each held their own in the paranormally-infused steampunk setting. Bayla was wonderful as the heroine, so easy to sympathise with and care about. The story unfolded in a suspenseful way and is at times an edge-of-seat experience. The love story was solid and the chemistry between the two main characters was amazing!

I would highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and steampunk novels.

Hand of Miriam
A Bayla and the Golem Novel (book 1)
by Eva Gordon

This is the first Steampunk novel I have read. I have wanted to read one for a while now and jumped at the chance to read this one. I think it was a great look into the steampunk world for me.

The Hand of Miriam by Eva Gordon combines the steampunk world, Jewish Mythology and romance into a wonderful book that kept me wanting more.

I look forward to the next installment of Bayla and the Golem.

HASH(0xa6951f60) out of 5 stars Great Read. Lots of storyline Feb. 6 2014
By Jacqueline S. Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In Hand of Miriam Ms. Gordon blends actual history but twists it to give it a paranormal and mystical quality that will have you wondering what will happen next. It is action plotted with a female hero that is timeless. Love is in the air, but is it attainable when danger stocks Bayla?
