Ann Burton's critically acclaimed first novel in this compelling Biblical series tells the fictionalized tale of a young Jewish lady who makes and markets pottery to support her family. But when her brother's huge gambling debt threatens to enslave them, she convinces his creditor to marry her and forgive the debt. After her husband sends her to manage his herds in the hills far away, Abigail grows fond of its rustic inhabitants-and of an enigmatic shepherd-soldier who's on a collision course with her husband.

Professional reviews

"The Old Testament story of Abigail is filled with drama in its account of her marriages, first to an evil man named Nabal and then to the shepherd David, who was to become king of Israel. Ann Burton writes a fictionalized version of this story, adding details of what could have happened. Through her narration Rachel Botchan endears Abigail to the listener. One is immediately brought into this story through the fears and desires of this compelling young woman. Botchan's excellent performance portrays the voices of many characters, making each one realistic and believable. A great story is well done by author and narrator. N.L.
