Daughter of Ishmael has finally hit the shelves!
Do people regret their choices?
Would a child, raised with the rules and standards of their parents regret giving up those standards as an adult?
This is the premise of Daughter of Ishmael.
Hannah, a young Hebrew girl in the days of Jeremiah the Prophet, has been raised in the household of a strong, kind, faithful father, following a prophet of God.
Years later on the far side of the world, seated beside a roaring fire, she watches her son as he dances near the flames with the other men of the village, all painted in the blood of their latest victims.
Where did she--did they--make a wrong turn?
Could she have chosen a different path?
Hannah's thoughts hark back through the years to find out. And in so doing, take us, her readers, along on her voyage through her life and the lives of the people of 600 BC.
This is my first, ever, attempt to write a biblical story. It has been quite an experience. One that I'm hoping to repeat. I've discovered I love this time period and these people.
I will definitely be visiting them again!
