Description
Ann Burton, author of the critically acclaimed Abigail’s Story, traces Rahab’s incredible journey from harlot to heroine. Shorn of her hair, stripped of her clothes, and cast out of her father’s house, Rahab now scavenges the streets. Desperate for food, she’s soon welcomed by the sisterhood of the House of Palms, a bordello. But after encountering two Israelite spies, Rahab makes a risky, life-altering choice.

“… a riveting tale of intrigue and heartache, with threads of hope …”—My Shelf

display_descriptionThe bible is filled with women of faith, bravery, and cunning. Here is one woman’s tale—as it might have happened…
 
“And the city shall be accursed…and all that are therein…only Rahab the harlot shall live…”—Joshua 6:17
 
Once, she was Rahab the Beautiful, eldest daughter of a weaver—and secret believer in her dead mother’s cherished Judaism. But when her hateful stepmother accused her of witchery, Rahab was banished to almost certain death in Jericho. Now the girl known as Rahab the Outcast has no choice but to mingle with the city’s untouchables—and join its ranks of prostitutes…
 
Even from the mire, Rahab keeps alive her faith in God. Then two Jewish spies for Joshua appear on her doorstep, begging her to hide them. Now, Rahab faces the biggest decision of her life: stay safe and slam the door in their faces—or help her fellow believers, and transform herself from harlot to heroine.
