Mila's Tale

“Mila’s Tale” is midrash—the retelling of a Biblical passage. Half of it is a new Laurie King short story; the other half is the author’s commentary on the text (“Jephthah’s Daughter” of Judges 11) and her suggestions for further reading. This is the first in Laurie King’s proposed Ladies of Spirit project, a collection of Modern Midrashes accompanied by her analysis and reflections.

Review by: Gail Lelyveld on Aug. 11, 2014 : (no rating)
I liked " Mila's Tale". It was short and got right to the point. It was sad of course, but beautifully written, bringin an ancient tale into modern times. Ii liked reading the commentary as well. It helped to bring meaning to the story. In this case it was about a woman who was going to fulfill the needs of her people.
