Deborah Rising

(2016)
A Novel Inspired by the Bible
A novel by

 
Deborah Risingis the story of a thirteen-year-old girl, who escapes a forced marriage to the brute son of a local ruler in ancient Israel. A redhead orphan with an uncanny mix of intelligence, gullibility and resolve, she goes on a quest to find a legendary Edomite elixir-maker, famed for having turned women into men. Her goal is to convince him to do the same for her. Deborah's journey proves increasingly perilous: her life is threatened by wild beasts, lustful men, unscrupulous priests and warring Hebrew tribesmen, whereas her unlikely allies include lepers, slaves, Moabite traders, and a dead tiger. But Deborah is determined to succeed: as a man, she would not have to endure a marriage of servitude, but instead, become entitled to inherit her murdered father's land and fulfill her dream of serving as God's prophet.

WhileDeborah Risingcompares favorably toThe Red TentandThe Dovekeepers, Deborah's pursuit of an all-consuming quest and the wisdom she gathers along the way will remind readers of Santiago's journey inThe Alchemist.
