As the sole daughter of the chief priest, Hannah is publicly shamed when the prophet of Israel refuses to heal her.
Determined to restore her family’s honor, Hannah escapes Jerusalem in hopes of finding the prophet and convincing him to heal her deformities. Gilead, a young Hebrew guard sympathetic to her plight, willingly accompanies her. On their way, they are captured by a band of raiders.
Hannah is forced to serve in the household of the commander of the Aramean army, an officer who is in need of healing himself. Meanwhile Gilead is being used as sword practice for the Aramean soldiers.
Hannah must act fast to save Gilead and herself. But survival means coaxing the prophet of Israel to heal and enemy commander.
Get to know Barbara...
If you were a superhero, what would be your super power?
I’m not sure this is a power, but I would like the Lasso of Truth Wonder Woman uses. I would wield it in a used car lot or at a computer fix-it store.
What are the names of your pets?
We rescued a kitten and named her Autumn because it was fall when we found her in a hayloft and she has an orange spot on her head resembling a leaf. We also have a leopard gecko named Halo. My son bought the gecko when he was in third grade. My son is off at college now and I have the honor of feeding the gecko live crickets.
Coffee or tea?
Iced tea please—with lemon and sweetener. I was never a tea drinker until I went to college in Texas. And in Texas, I made sun tea. Not so much in Wisconsin.
