    To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she' s paid to finally feel like she' s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven.

    Candace says: "Francine Rivers is the best for a reason."

    The story of Sarah, and of history itself, begins in the cradle of civilization: the Sumerian city-state of Ur, a land of desert heat, towering gardens, and immense wealth. The daughter of a powerful lord, Sarah is raised in great luxury, but balks at the arranged marriage her father has planned for her. The groom is handsome and a nobleman, but on their wedding day, Sarah panics and impulsively flees to the vast, empty marshes outside the city walls.

    Sarah says: "An easy listen, not great literature"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes I would take out the pornographic description of sex between abraham and sarah.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah her strength


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Do you think Sarah: Book One of the Canaan Trilogy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes of course there could be a follow up she had issac!


    Any additional comments?

    This author has unfortunately used Christian characters to write a very provacative pornographic book. The story is excellent but if she wants to include such graphics needs to stick to a secular market. I read Christian books to get away from all the cursing and porno in secular books
