The Crimson Cord: Rahab's Story

Impeccable research and vivid prose from Smith ("The Wives of the Patriarchs" series; "The Wives of King David" books) brings the ancient city of Jericho to life. The author's reinterpretation of a classic Old Testament story rings with authenticity. CF devotees who relished Tosca Lee's Legend of Sheba, Tessa Afshar's In the Field of Grace, or Angela Hunt's Esther: Royal Beauty will enjoy this pleasurable read.


Though slow-moving at first, the story eventually picks up. Well-developed characters make this retelling of the Sarah and Abraham story one that fans of Orson Scott Card's "Women of Genesis" series will want to read.
