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.
National award-winning novel Noah's Wife by T.K. Thorne touches all of these issues with wisdom and humor.
Tackling one of the oldest and most famous stories on earth, Thorne's unique twists to the Biblical story - which makes only one mention of Noah's wife - tells the tale from the perspective of a young girl with what is now known as Asperger Syndrome in a culture that existed during a great flood in the Black Sea region 6,500 years ago.
Noah's wife is Na'amah, a beautiful and brilliant girl who wishes only to be a shepherdess on her beloved hills in ancient Turkey - a desire shattered by the hatred of her powerful brother, the love of two men, and a looming disaster that threatens the survival of her world.
