BookwormAge: 25-345 Stars Out Of 5All. The. Feels.October 17, 2020BookwormAge: 25-34Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Oh, how I love to actually LIVE inside a story. A Pearl in the Sand is a gorgeous, captivating, soul touching story based on the Biblical story of Rahab. I will miss these characters and the many emotions they put me through!
Biblical fiction breathes a new kind of life to the Bible stories Ive read since youth. Its so evident that great care was taken to be historically accurate with customs and beliefs and yet, the fictional aspects dont take away an ounce of the original storys wonder.
In this story of love, faith, forgiveness, and redemption, Rahab and Salmone put me through the wringer. I was sympathetic to all Rahab had to overcome, in awe of Joshuas leadership and Miriams strength, and appalled at Rahabs fathers errors. And then theres Salmone, who may have undergone the deepest transformation. He pierced my heart in oh so many places.
And dont miss the sweet treat discovered in the epilogue. Its so meaningful and gave me chills.
All. The. Feels.
Ive read several of Tessa Afshars stories, and though difficult to pick a favorite, this is certainly one of my favorites. And the part in the book when I realized the true significance of the pearl oh my.
Every aspect of this book is spectacular, right down to the dedication page. The writing is strong and effective, the characters are believable and easy to connect with, the history transported me, and I experienced emotions in Biblical proportions.
I received an advanced copy of this 10th anniversary book from the publisher. Opinions expressed are completely my own.
