Joan Wolf is a 30 year veteran of Romance writing. She has provided great reading material in the genre’s of Historical Romance, Regency Romance, Historical Novels and more. Her series of biblical based fictions is unlike anything I’ve ever read.
The Scarlet Cord tells the love story of Rahab. Rahab is a Canaanite woman from the times of battle in Jericho. Rahab aided the Israelite people by hanging a scarlet cord from her window to give warning. Though this was a dangerous thing to do, this brave and beautiful young woman took much risk to help a cause she believed in and follow her faith in the meantime.
While preforming this brave action, Rahab also finds her one true love, Sala. Sala is an Israelite boy who saves her in more than one way. Her love of Sala and her strength to do what is write leads her to find her greatest love of all: The Love of God. Both were everlasting and unconditional loves that she never thought she’d find.
Though this book is fictional, it does have a biblical story line. The story of Rahab has been created from the events of the time period from biblical accounts. I found the story intriguing and easy to follow. It was very much enjoyable and it has led me to want to read more Historical Fiction from Joan Wolf.
