Sarah Synopsis

In Sarah, Orson Scott Card uses his fertile imagination and uncanny insight into human nature to flesh out a unique woman - one who is beautiful, tough, smart, and resourceful in an era when women get short shrift in life as well as in the historical record. Sarah takes on a 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. Set in the splendor and excess of Egypt and the starkly beautiful desert landscapes of the Sinai peninsula, Sarah is an altogether believable and provocative drama.

Sarah Press Reviews

This series is definitely for those interested in women in the Bible, and in such novels as The Red Tent (by New York Times bestseller Anita Diamant). --Kliatt The story moves swiftly, climaxing at several points, such as Abram and Sarai's stay in Egypt when the pharaoh wants to take Sarai as his wife. It is a quick and interesting read....This is an intriguing story . --Pittsburg Post-Gazette This playfully speculative novel succeeds in bringing Sarah's soft-overlooked character into vivid relief. --Publishers Weekly This is an inventive and engaging telling of the life of Sarah, the woman who laughed at God's news (that so old a woman would now bear a child)--and who gives as good as she gets throughout both the book of Genesis and Card's novel. --Historical Novel Society
