The young heroine in Sinners and the Sea is destined for greatness. Known only as “wife” in the Bible and cursed with a birthmark that many think is the brand of a demon, this unnamed woman lives anew through Rebecca Kanner. The author gives this virtuous woman the perfect voice to make one of the Old Testament’s stories come alive like never before.
Desperate to keep her safe, the woman’s father gives her to the righteous Noah, who weds her and takes her to the town of Sorum, a haven for outcasts. Alone in her new life, Noah’s wife gives him three sons. But living in this wicked and perverse town with an aloof husband who speaks more to God than to her takes its toll. She tries to make friends with the violent and dissolute people of Sorum while raising a brood that, despite its pious upbringing, develops some sinful tendencies of its own. While Noah carries out the Lord’s commands, she tries to hide her mark and her shame as she weathers the scorn and taunts of the townspeople.
But these trials are nothing compared to what awaits her after God tells her husband that a flood is coming—and that Noah and his family must build an ark so that they alone can repopulate the world. As the floodwaters draw near, she grows in courage and honor, and when the water finally recedes, she emerges whole, displaying once and for all the indomitable strength of women. Drawing on the biblical narrative and Jewish mythology, Sinners and the Sea is a beautifully written account of the antediluvian world told in cinematic detail.
“Rebecca Kanner brings the antediluvian world of giants, prophets, and demons alive, setting her narrative in motion from the first chapter and never letting it rest. She is a writer of great dexterity, performing tricks at a full sprint.”
“Sinners and the Sea is an excellent example of the traditional Jewish method of Midrash meeting the modern writer’s pen. Kanner does a masterful job of penetrating the depths of the Biblical Flood narrative and weaving in the complicated reality of challenging relationships and longings for personal fulfillment. Her desire to go beyond the traditional midrashic understanding of the lives she explores introduces us to a courageous and insightful young writer whose first book will take its place alongside other exciting modern re-readings of the ancient Biblical text.”
“Sinners and the Sea is a rare find—a bold and vivid journey into the antediluvian world of Noah. Kanner’s is a fresh, irresistible story about the unnamed woman behind the famous ark-builder. Compelling and masterfully written.”
"Kanner animates a harsh, almost dystopic world of fallen people struggling to survive. Noah's unnamed wife is a powerful, memorable character."
"Kanner successfully undertakes a formidable task retelling a familiar religious story through the eyes of Noah’s wife. The narrative’s well-articulated, evenly balanced, and stimulating—but it’s definitely not the familiar tale that’s so frequently illustrated in children’s books."

Kell1 Stars Out Of 5Sinners and the SeaAugust 13, 2014KellQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I read about a third of this book and then got rid of it. It made me feel degraded. The author may have been trying to paint a picture of a sinful word, but it didn't need to go on throughout the entire book to make that point. Also, Noah was not portrayed as the righteous man that the Bible talks about. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
SusanKayAge: 55-65Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5I can not recommendJune 16, 2014SusanKayAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1If I could give this book a score of zero I would. This is a horrid portrayal of Noah. He is shown as a weak spineless crazy man who ignores his family. His son's are portrayed as adulterous womanizers. One of the son's impregnates another son's wife. There are other survivors besides Noah's family in additional boats leaving one with the impression that Noah and his family were not alone in repopulating the world. It is not a biblical portrayal of the true events. This book would be very misleading to a new Christian. This book is: Violent, immoral, with sexual content. Don't waste your money on it.

VERITASAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Exciting book!February 18, 2014VERITASAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was OUTSTANDING. One need remember it is a work of fiction, and not the bible story you learned in Sunday school. The author paints such a vivid picture of the world Noah lived in it feels like you are experiencing it firsthand. While there are some graphic violence and adult situations, they really lend to the authenticity of the experience. It is not a censored and watered down Disney tale by any means. Truly a wonderful and vivid adventure! Bravo!
