A Good Read:
In Pursuit of Abraham by Francine Fuqua:
Francine Fuqua has taken an old manuscript of her grandfather’s novel about women of the Hebrew Scriptures and woven it into her own novel of World War II adventure and intrigue. The main character’s pursuit of Abraham turns out to be a pursuit of his own identity across the Middle East of 1944-1945. The characters are genuinely believable and engaging. Descriptions of Biblical and contemporary locations are lush and sensual. Keep in mind this is not a history book, but a tale of historical fiction. So don’t expect a dry, literal account. The truth to be gleaned from In Pursuit of Abraham is a truth of the soul. If you are an honestly engaged reader, you may well encounter new truths about yourself. Overall, an excellent read!
