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.

A MUST LISTEN! Great Story Teller
A copy of this audiobook, Noah's Wife 5500 BCE was given to WordsAPlenty by the author, T. K. Thorne, in exchange for an honest review.
Noah’s wife is set in 5500 BCE. Yes, Noah’s wife is mentioned in the bible along with the great flood and other characters that are angry, sad, lonely, faithful, struggling, and the list goes on. So why listen to this book?
Noah’s Wife is an exciting book that deals with issues in 5500 BCE AND today – the struggle of women to be more than second class citizens, morality and ethical issues, cultural issues and even dating! Since before 5500 BCE women have struggled to be more and men have struggled on how to be with a strong woman. Time has not changed the issues at all!
Using the great flood, T. K. Thorne presents unique twists to the story by focusing on Noah’s wife. This fictional accounting of the great flood and story about it is exciting. Noah’s wife, Na’amah comes from a severely dysfunctional family, dealing with the love of two men that have disastrous results and Na’amah also has the burden of dealing with what is now known as Asperger Syndrome.
Listening to Na’amah’s life as told through her voice one recognizes the naiveté in the beginning, by the end of the book naiveté has been replaced with strength and knowledge. Her struggles resound with those of us today.
T.K. Thorne is an excellent story teller; building her plot and characters to great depths showing who they are, what they think – giving us, her listeners a unique experience. As a piece of fiction, she skillfully mixes in historical pieces that are well known. Her skill to blend the incidents and story together are expert.
I had the pleasure of both reading Noah’s Wife and listening to it. The audiobook is excellent as Melissa Carey, narrator, projects the right amount of naiveté and confusion in Na’amah’s voice growing it to the strength she gains by the end of the book due to her experiences. Within a few moments of listening, I heard Carey become Na’amah! This narration brought the book to life!
I highly recommend this book as a must listen! You will be transported to 5500 BCE between the skill of Thorne and Carey. You will feel the pain, joy, and growth of this unique woman.
There were no issues with production quality. Everything was perfect with the audio.
Na'amah. Her inner strength and intelligence is phenomenal.
She becomes Na'amah by showing her innocence and growing her into the strong character she becomes.
When Na'amah recognizes the true purpose behind her brother's anger and hatred.
This is a rare book that should not be missed. It is about a Christian event but by no means is it a preachy Christian novel. The focus of the book is beyond that - it deals with issues that have plagued women since the beginning of existence.
