Praise for The Handmaid and the Carpenter
"The oldest story ever told becomes fresh, even modern. Grade: ] A."
"Poetic, reflective, and intricate . . . There is a crystalline humanity, a logical vulnerability in Elizabeth] Berg's imaginative interpretation that] brings novel resplendence to a familiar story."
"Sweetly lyrical and yet movingly realistic."
-New York Daily News
" Berg] movingly takes the story of the least ordinary couple in history, and by respectfully evoking the rhythms and rituals of
daily life, makes them more human, yet no less transcendent."
"Imaginative and compelling."
