Publisher's Summary

While the Israelites struggle to occupy the Promised Land of God, Mahlah bat Zelophehad is orphaned and left to care for her four sisters. But daughters of the dead are unable to inherit land, and it will take a miracle for Mahlah to obtain the means to care for her sisters and uphold the vow she made to her dying mother.

Mahlah must seek Moses, the leader of her people, and request something extraordinary - the right for a daughter to inherit her deceased father's land. A right that will upset the ox-cart of male inheritance and thrust her into the role of a rebel.

But, God is the protector of the orphan and the widow, and five orphaned daughters need his help. With God, anything is possible. Even changing man's tradition.

Very sweet story

It took a while to get into as the writing was a pretty slow pace to start off but it did start to pick up and it turned into the sweetest story! I really enjoyed it and really cared about the characters. It is a very sweet story of strength, family bonds, love, humility and pride. it was fun to listen to a story set in the days of Moses, to hear things you are familiar with but from Mahlah's point of view. The narrator was also fantastic. Her sweet, calm voice was a perfect choice to tell Mahlah's story. She kept the story going and did a such a great job pronouncing some of the Hebrew words that are not used in modern day and just added a great atmosphere for the story.

*I received a free copy of the audiobook but my words and opinions are my own.
