Sarai was a child of ten years when she first met Abram. He appeared before her in her father’s house, filthy from the desert, tired and thirsty. But as the dirt of travel was washed from his body, the sight of him filled her heart. And when Abram promised Sarai to return in ten years to take her for his wife, her fate was sealed.

Abram kept his promise, and Sarai kept hers. They were wed, and so began a lifetime together of both great joy and great peril, for with the blessing of their God, who bestows on them new names, a great nation would be built around the core of their love.

Bestselling author Orson Scott Card uses his fertile imagination and uncanny insight into human nature to tell the story of a unique woman—one who is beautiful, tough, smart, and resourceful in an era when women had little power. Sarah, child of the desert, wife of Abraham, takes on vivid reality as a woman desirable to kings, a devoted wife, and a faithful follower of the God of Abraham, chosen to experience an incomparable miracle.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Allison | 2/12/2014

    " All right, So I need to take some thoughts back. Before, I have been known to not like using sacred characters in fiction. I like this book. I need to admit, isn' that step one?... Mr. Card has used very good references. I truly hope that this would bring someone to actually read the scriptural stories the book was based on. "

    " I enjoyed the whole series. "

    " I love this Women of Genesis series! Thanks, T! It felt authentic and I thought it was well-researched culturally and scriptorally. It provided more of a LDS Christian perspective. I liked Scott-Card's explanations or possible motives people might have had in navigating through the more confusing elements of this record in the Bible. "

    " I loved this book. I especially liked being able to envision the setting of this scriptural account. I had never really thought about what a nomadic life might have been like. It was a great story to have fleshed out into a novel. "
