A novel set in 5500 BCE can’t possibly relate to today’s issues— or can it?
Dysfunctional family relationships • Sexual abuse • Kidnapping • Love triangle • Religious freedom • Autism • Cultural Change
This award-winning novel touches all of these issues with wisdom and humor.
From the perspective of a young girl with what is now known as Aspergers, Thorne weaves twists into the Biblical story, entwining myth, history, and archaeological findings with her vivid imagination.
Na’amah wishes only to be a shepherdess on her beloved hills in ancient Turkey— a desire shattered by the hatred of her powerful brother and the love of two men.
Her savant abilities and penchant to speak truth forces her to walk a dangerous path in an age of change— a time of challenge to the goddess’ ancient ways, when cultures clash and the earth itself is unstable. When foreign raiders kidnap her, Na’amah’s journey to escape and return home becomes an attempt to save her people from the disaster only she knows is coming.
