An elegantly illustrated collection of ten favourite Bible stories with an interesting twist. Margaret McAllister imaginatively retells these tales from the point of view of the women involved: Noah's wife, Miriam, Ruth, Mary mother of Jesus, Pilate's wife, Mary Magdalene are among some of the women who put their side of the story forward. A stylish compilation of Bible stories with a difference, this is a perfect gift for girls.

Women played a vital role in the Bible, and this book brings 10 to the forefront. We can enjoy the stories from the viewpoint of Mother Noah, Rachel, Miriam, Ruth, Mary of Nazareth, Martha and Mary, the Canaanite Woman, Lady Procula, the wife of Pilate, Mary of Magdala and Lydia. Some of these names may be unfamiliar and that is the lovely thing about this book - the different perspective we gain on the familiar events. The stories are sensitive and well told (many in the first person which adds to the impact) and beautifully complemented by Alida Massari's delicate and detailed illustrations.
