Reading Group Guide

Sarah is the passionate, spellbinding story of one of the most famous—yet least-known—women of the Bible. The daughter of a lord in the Sumerian city-state Ur, Sarah balks at her fathers choice of a husband and flees to the tent-city below. She spends one night there, protected by the kind stranger Abraham, before returning to Ur, haunted by Abrahams memory. To avoid being forced to marry, she secretly drinks a potion that renders her barren—which Sumerian culture sees as a sign of divine possession. Years later, Sarah sees Abraham again, but now she is the high priestess, the most revered woman in Sumeria, whose renowned beauty never ages. Exalted as she is, Sarah doesnt hesitate when Abraham asks her to join his nomadic life, following the one true God.

From the great ziggurat of Ishtar to the fertile valleys of Canaan, the bedchamber of the Pharaoh to the plateau where Abraham would sacrifice their son Isaac, Sarah immerses readers in an ancient world of spectacle, intrigue, and miracles. This guide is designed to help direct your reading groups discussion of this powerful novel.

This is a very well researched book. It is a trip back in time to explore more of the Bible.
