Story re-written from the point-of-view of Mother Noah, Rachel, Miriam, Ruth, Mary of Nazareth, Martha and Mary, The Canaanite Woman, Lady Procula, Mary Of Magdala, and Lydia. Gives a fresh take on each story from a female's perspective. Accompanied by lovely illustrations. This book would make a great confirmation present for a goddaughter.
This is a beautiful book to give to young girls. The bible is full of stories of men, but this book is specifically dedicated to the women in the bible. The pages are beautifully illustrated and full of colour. This is a great introduction to learn about the women in the bible. It has interesting characters such as Lady Procula, Pilate wife, even I learnt something new. Girls will absolutely love this book!
