This series is definitely for those interested in women in the Bible, and in such novels as The Red Tent (by New York Times bestseller Anita Diamant). --Kliatt "The story moves swiftly, climaxing at several points, such as Abram and Sarai's stay in Egypt when the pharaoh wants to take Sarai as his wife. It is a quick and interesting read....This is an intriguing story ."--Pittsburg Post-Gazette "This playfully speculative novel succeeds in bringing Sarah's soft-overlooked character into vivid relief."--Publishers Weekly "This is an inventive and engaging telling of the life of Sarah, the woman who laughed at God's news (that so old a woman would now bear a child)--and who gives as good as she gets throughout both the book of Genesis and Card's novel." --Historical Novel Society
