After Abel and Other Stories by Michal Lemberger
A compelling collection of short fiction based on Biblical stories
How did Eve feel about Cain’s fratricide? What did Lot’s wife think and do after Lot offered their virgin daughters to strangers? Frankly feminist, Michal Lemberger’s stories give voice to silent, oft-marginalized biblical women: their ambition, their love for their children, their values, their tremendous struggles and challenges. Informed by her deep knowledge of the Bible, each of Lemberger’s stories vividly re-imagines a biblical saga from the perspective of a pivotal woman.
