Pearl In The Sand - Tessa Afshar
Afshar created a beautifully woven story, based on biblical and archaeological sources, whenever possible and she stresses that this is a fictional story based on a historical woman who holds great importance for both Jews and Christians. The Hebrew Bible discloses that after the destruction of Jericho, Rahab settles in Israel permanently, but we aren't given further details about her life. Outside of the story of the destruction of the walls of Jericho, the only other mention of Rahab is in one portion of a verse in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus.
This is a tender tale of restoration, Godly love and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book!
Thank you Moody Publisher's for the complimentary copy of this book for my review.
