Read this as a Youth and LOVE it. Read it to my son and he did too.
Great packaging thank you. Very timely. Regards, Lin
One of my fondest memories was the discovery of this book in 1993 (same year it was published) at my local library and thinking it was the most romantic story I'd ever read.
I was sooo naïve.
This was back in the days when LDS historical fiction was still in its infancy. Heather B. Moore's "Out of Jerusalem" series was a decade away. If you wanted a story based on scripture, Robert H. Moss was your only choice ("I Nephi..." "The Covenant Coat,"). At 107 pages, this text is dense with a slow moving story, lots of grammatical errors and two-dimensional characters who suffer from drastic mood changes making them hard to believe and root for.
Twelve year old Ari'el (did the author watch "The Little Mermaid" a few times?) is the youngest daughter of Ishmael. She spends her days tending a flock of goats, imagining where her favorite cousin, Nephi, and his older brothers might've disappeared to and vowing she will never marry. Her older sisters are some of the silliest girls in Jerusalem. Ishmael allows himself to be manipulated by a wicked Captain, who only has eyes for Ari'el of course, just so he can get his daughters married and out of his hair while his wife is dead set on marrying off her girls to the sons of Lehi, as they've always planned. This whole plot complication is wrapped up in the last few pages when Nephi and his brothers FINALLY come for the daughters of Ishmael and the rest of his family to carry them off into the wilderness. Not much from 1 Nephi is in here. While there is nothing offensive, the idea of female subjection and the subtle message that a woman is nothing without a man makes up the entire dialog of this book as the sisters' entire focus is on getting a man to notice them while Ari'el pleads with them to follow their Uncle Lehi and cousin Nephi.
Oh, and God too, of course though He's rather an afterthought in everything these Hebrew women do.
