The Scarlet Cord - Book CoverBible stories have captured imaginations for centuries--Daniel in the lion's den; Jonah and the whale; and the heroine of "The Scarlet Cord", Rahab the Harlot. When the famous walls of Jericho came tumbling down, Rahab and her family were the only survivors. Why? Because Rahab assisted the Hebrew spies in exchange for their promise of amnesty. Afterward, this woman with a past married well and became the ancestor of impressive monarchs including King David, Solomon the Wise, and the King of Kings Jesus Christ. The story of how that happened has not been passed down to us. However, "The Scarlet Cord" is a novel that speculates on how Rahab's remarkable story might have unfolded.

About The Author

I've lived in several states and two countries outside the United States. I went to school for a very long time and finally got a B.A. in English. I'm married. I haven't replaced the cat who died (at age 17). In 2005 I became a Christian--that is to say, a true believer in Jesus Christ--and started writing.
