I just finished reading...

In the Shadow of the Ark, by Anne Provoost. It's kind of like The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, where the author takes a story from the Bible and fleshes it out, gives it a back story and a new perspective. It's fiction of course, but I love having different ways of looking at stories.

I highly recommend this book, it was a great read. In the book, you find out that Noah's sons weren't so righteous after all, so you're left with this questions of, why them? Why were they chosen and saved? Did God really eradicate evil from the world like he wanted? How were babies evil, why did they have to die?

Have you read this, and did you like/dislike it? Why? What have you read lately?

    I haven't read it but I might pick it up since I absolutely loved The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. Thanks for the review!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
