Noah's wife is Na'amah, a brilliant young girl with a form of autism that what we (now) know as Aspergers. Na'amah only wishes to be a shepherdess on the hills of ancient Turkey—a desire shattered by the hatred of her powerful brother, the love of two men, and a disaster that threatens her world.
Based on evidence of a great Black Sea flood thousands of years ago--a unique and feminine view of the Noah’s ark story.
“…a terrific storyteller.”
