THE BLURB:  

Can a Canaanite harlot who has made her livelihood by looking desirable to men make a fitting wife for one of the leaders of Israel? Shockingly, the Bible’s answer is yes.

Pearl in the Sand tells Rahab’s untold story. Rahab lives in a wall; her house is built into the defensive walls of the City of Jericho. Other walls surround her as well—walls of fear, rejection, unworthiness.

A woman with a wrecked past; a man of success, of faith … of pride; a marriage only God would conceive!  Through the heartaches of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another’s worth and find healing in God.

 

THE FIRST LINE:

Dawn had yet to appear when Rahab tumbled into consciousness, courtesy of an impatient nudge.

 

MY THOUGHTS:  

What a beautifully written and beautifully conceived story of such a significant figure from Scripture. Barely more than a mention of her in the Bible, and yet of course she had a story. And Ms. Afshar’s account puts the reader in the story, instantly making her one of my favorite authors.

 

 

STARS:

     Five stars, definitely five stars.
