NAOMI AND HER DAUGHTERS

Image of Naomi and Her Daughters: A Novel

Wangerin draws readers into the life of a woman marred by sorrow, bitterness and loss. The remarkably vivid and sometimes graphic scenes will have you on the edge of your seat. Characters and scenes leap from the page as readers get a fascinating glimpse into the lives of characters we thought we knew.

The life of Naomi begins with a daughter we never knew about. When the news of Milcah’s death is heard throughout the tribes of Israel, a war breaks out. When famine hits Bethlehem, Naomi, her husband and their two sons move to Moab, where bitterness and loss sear her soul. Naomi returns to Bethlehem a much different person. And it is in Bethlehem where we see the hand of God perform his greatest miracle yet. (ZONDERVAN, Aug., 288 pp., $24.99)
