Sarai was a child of 10 years when she first met Abram. He appeared before her in her father's house, filthy from the desert, tired, and thirsty. But as the dirt of travel was washed from his body, the sight of him filled her heart. And when Abram promised Sarai to return in 10 years to take her for his wife, her fate was sealed.Abram kept his promise, and Sarai kept hers. They were wed and so began a lifetime together of both great joy and great peril for, with the blessing of their God who bestows on them new names, a great nation would be built around the core of their love.
Best-selling author Orson Scott Card tells the story of a unique woman, one who is beautiful, tough, smart, and resourceful. Sarah takes on vivid reality as a woman desirable to kings, a devoted wife, and a faithful follower of the God of Abraham, chosen to experience an incomparable miracle.
"What Card does best: exploring human motives and relationships....This playfully speculative novel succeeds in bringing Sarah's oft overlooked character into vivid relief." (Publishers Weekly)
