Author: Naomi Craig
Genre: Biblical Fiction
Release date: August 17, 2021
A scarlet cord tethers one ruined woman to the salvation of mankind.
Harboring two fugitives in a city slated for destruction, Rahab has one small chance of escape. In exchange for their safety, she bargains for her own. Their agreement rewards her courage, and she flees Jericho and a life of prostitution for a new life among the people of Israel. Never again will she have to depend on anyone—especially men.
Except Salmah won’t take the hint.
High ranking soldier and leader of the tribe of Judah, Salmah is determined not to repeat his parents’ mistakes. He will keep the Lord’s commandments. Rahab’s growing faith fits right in with phase one of his plans: find a wife who loves the Lord and settle down in the new land.
Rahab finds shelter and meaning in the Lord’s ways until her past comes back to haunt her. As her new faith is put to test, she finds herself alone. Isn’t that what she’d always wanted?
With her courage waning, only the Lord can turn Rahab’s life around again, but will He do it before she loses everyone and everything that really matters to her—to her heart?
Rahab’s Courage Excerpt Three
Nathan met Salmah’s eyes and nodded. Yahweh’s plan would prevail despite the warning in Salmah’s gut. He took the rear guard, watching the inner gate. Nathan made it halfway up the stairs before Salmah followed. He backed up the first stair, aware of every cart wheel rattling, every merchant haggling inside the city. He reached his left foot back and his sandal brushed the side of the step, finding air instead of the stone he expected. Arms flailing, he overcorrected and prepared for impact.
Searing pain stabbed through his ankle. He squeezed his eyes shut and sucked a breath through his teeth. By the time he had his wits about him, Nathan was no longer visible. Vulnerable to anyone who would happen by, Salmah dragged himself backward, wedging between large water jugs. Sweat beaded on his forehead. Every sound and movement from the inner gate seemed amplified. He crouched his shoulders lower.
No bones protruded from his ankle. Tentatively, Salmah put weight on his foot. No good.
Still no sign of Nathan. Breathing hard, he wrapped his ankle with his sword belt. The stiff leather from the sheath provided a comforting degree of immovability.
