How far will a woman run who is afraid of true Love? To what lengths will she go to prove she can have life the way she wants it? What will it take to bring down her facade of bravado and control? Could two women living in vastly different time periods be trapped in the same struggles? What impact might an ancient drama from a distant land have on a strong-headed, pretty, young woman who is otherwise headed toward her own demise? Is God somewhere in the chaos?
War is not an attractive backdrop to the winning of a heart. Yet it is the gut-wrenching reality of war in Iraq which sets the stage for Vanessa Miller’s heart to be captured by Love. 
In Under the Ancient and Modern Sun, Private Miller proudly fights for her country in the midst of 2003 Operation Iraqi Freedom. Attempting to veil a deep sadness, Vanessa pursues a lustful affair with a philandering, married first sergeant, while confronting gender bias in the United States Army.
Following the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, in her role with the Military Police, Private Miller is given custody of a mysterious artifact found in the search of a small Iraqi home. She is placed in charge of escorting the relic into the welcoming hands of the National Iraqi Museum, where her fate becomes entwined with a resident authority on ancient languages, Dr. Archibald Finkel.  
What Dr. Finkel discovers in the previously-unknown antiquity will change their lives, transforming them into war-zone friends, and propelling Vanessa into a destiny she could not before have imagined or embraced. 
Under the Ancient and Modern Sun is a compelling story of hope, redemption and the realization that our true selves are created for authentic Love, and nothing less will do.
