I'm amazed at how Beatrice Gormley took one chapter from the Bible II Kings Chapter 5 and expanded it into a novel Most of the incidents in the Bible chapter happen in the last uarter of the book The first 34ths of the story describe how the Israelite servant girl comes to be the maid of General Naaman's wife Gormley gives her a name Adara and a home town Ramoth Gilead the scene of a battle between the Israelites and the Aramites Sneaking out to view the battle Adara is captured by the Aramites and given to Lady Doronit to be her slave What I really liked is that even in that remote time Adara envisions for herself than just the traditional role of wife and mother I also liked her strong faith which ultimately led to her own good fortune as well as the good fortune of those in the General's household The details of life then were very interesting though I would have liked a list of books or web sites for further information on the time period Nevertheless I hated to see this story end and highly recommend it especially if you like historical fiction
