Sinners and the Sea
The Untold Story of Noah's WifeLarge Print - 2013 | Large Print edition
Cursed with a birthmark that many think is the brand of a demon, a young woman is deprived even of a name for fear that it would make it easier for people to spread lies about her. 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 land of outcasts. Noah, a 600-year-old paragon of virtue, rises to the role of preacher to a town full of sinners. Alone in her new life, taunted by her neighbors for her mark, Noah's wife gives him three sons, but is faced with the hardship of living with an aloof husband who speaks more to God than with her. She tries to make friends with the violent and dissolute people of Sorum while raising a brood that, despite a pious upbringing, have developed some sinful tendencies of their own. But her 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.
