Five women face hardship and difficult choices, but they find friendship with each other and ways to escape.
Rebecca Velez Books
Five women. Desperate situations. Unexpected answers. The young widow Hadassah faces the possibility of life in the Persian harem. Jarah fears she'll never marry because of her greedy uncle. Naama fails to see her husband's love when he relocates them across the Persian empire. Tova longs for a god other than Moloch, the god of darkness. Judith wants a courageous, committed mate worthy of her. After a four-month journey, the Jews arrive in a Promised Land that doesn't fulfill their expectations and become entangled in a shocking affair when Jewish men are commanded to divorce their heathen wives. Will true believers be spared, or will they be returned to the lands of their births and the gods of their ancestors?
