Indivisible, Pearl in the Sand

by Kristen Heitzmann

Someone is performing sick experiments on animals in a small town and the police chief is concerned. Several of the towns residents are rather unusual characters; is it one of them doing these things? A combination of mystery and romance make this an exciting page-turner.

I like all of Kristen Heitzmann's books and this one did not disappoint.

Pearl in the Sand: a novel
by Tessa Afshar

This book is an imaginative retelling of the Biblical story of Rahab, the prostitute in Jericho who hid the spies of Israel. When her city was destroyed, she was spared and joined the people of Israel and even married one of them, eventually being listed in the genealogy of Jesus. How she may have felt and the difficulties she must have faced make a great story.

I thought the author did a great job with this book. It was tastefully done; Rahab's occupation is covered without going into detail. It is obvious that a lot of research went into the writing of this story and it seems entirely believable.
