Sam can’t believe it when his father leaves the family to marry another woman—and a white woman, at that. The betrayal cuts deep—Sam had been so close to his dad, and idolized him. Now who can he turn to, who can he trust? Even God seems to have ditched him. Ishmael is his father’s first son, the heir, his favorite. But when his father is visited by mysterious strangers who claim that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, will finally give birth to a son, Ishmael is worried. And when baby Isaac arrives, Ishmael becomes more isolated from his father. Could Abraham’s God, who had spoken to Ishmael’s mother, to whom he has made countless sacrifices, now betray him in favor of this new son? Download and start listening now!

    " Short novel in poetry form. I really liked this one. Looks at the biblical story of Ishmael and pairs it with a contemporary character who is facing a parallel situation--losing a father to another woman and son. "

    " This book brought me to tears. It touched my soul. Abraham's son, Ishmael, and Sam, an African American living in modern day, take turns narrating the story. They have quite a bit in common. They are both rejected by their fathers, and then learn to continue with life. "

    " Dark Sons is the story of two young men, one during biblical times and one during modern times. They are both facing the fact that their father has chosen another family, another child, over them and how they feel about it. The relationship the two men have with God is tested as they try to come to terms with the direction their life is taking. "

    " I enjoyed this book. It tells the story of two boys trying to make peace with both their god, as well as with the challenging circumstances they've been dealt. The poetic flow yields an easy read. Before using this in a classroom, I would have to supplement some background information of the relevant biblical story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar but it would still be an enjoyable read without it.
