Review For the Scralet Cord by Joan Wolf

The description on the back of the book This Scarlet Cord reads as follows: Within one of the Old Testament's most famous battles lies one of the most tender love stories. Hidden within the battle of Jericho is the story of Rahab, a beautiful and brave young Canaanite woman who aided the Israelites by hanging a piece of scarlet cord from a window. This act of faith changed her life by placing her in the genealogy of Christ. Rahab is the youngest daughter of a Canaanite farmer, taken to Jericho for the pagan New Year so her father can find her a wealthy spouse. Sala, the Israelite boy who had once saved her from being kidnapped, is also in Jericho. When the two young people meet again they admit their love for one another, but their different religions make marriage impossible. Their love story plays out against the background of Jericho's pagan rites. It is only when the One True God of Israel comes into Rahab's life--and she realizes what He is calling her to do--that she and Sala can come together. Witness Rahab as a young woman determined to find her destiny as she follows her heart toward true love . . . and the One True God. I am looking forward to going back and rereading this book at a later date I recived it from Booksneeze to read and review and did not get the chance to read it and enjoy it as I wanted to But do look forward to doing it again and rereading it when things are better for me
