Book summary:

In the first century Roman Empire at fourteen, the legal age of manhood, Jacobus' father contracted him to relatives in Sicily as an apprentice learning his Jewish family's shipping business. Being what the Greeks called a "natural eunuch", he found himself living with two "cut eunuch" Carthaginian slaves who eventually became his lowers. As his apprenticeship progressed, the family recognized his natural leadership abilities surpassed his age. By sixteen, he developed a strategy to enter the India trade which succeeded beyond expectations. He also became the second "spouse" of his cousin, the director of Aetna shipping. Everything, in his life changed when his brother-in-law, Simon from Cyrene, was awoken one night by a frightening vision causing some of the family, with their Judeo-Indian partners to take Simon to Jerusalem for Passover.
