Pearl In the Sand By Tessa Afshar Review and Giveaway!

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. At the age of fifteen Rahab is forced into prostitution by her beloved father. In her years as a courtesan, she learns to mistrust men and hate herself. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walks Salmone, a respected leader of Judah. Through the tribulations of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another's worth in God and find healing from fear and rejection
My Thoughts:
What a fascinating look in the Rahab's life as a strong woman determined to make it in the world she was forced in to. The story flowed with so much colorful details The characters came to life and I found my self wishing that there was seqeul to book.

I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to biblical couples... The only one off the top of my head is Adam and Eve? Thank you for including me. =)

I would say my favorite couple is Abraham and Sarah.

They really seems to be complete characters in the bible although I would love to have someone write more about Sarah.

By the way my mothers name was Sarah.

If the giveaway is open worldwide please enter me.

Thanks.

Hi Dani. Just a short note to say I love your blog. It's so colorful and unique. Pearl's cover looks fantastic against all that red and period costumes. I also wanted to thank you for your sweet comments. It's a joy to know you enjoyed Rahab's story.
