Library Binding, Large Print (1/15/2022)
Mahlah must seek Moses, the leader of her people, and request something extraordinary—the right for a daughter to inherit her deceased father's land. A right that will upset the ox-cart of male inheritance and thrust her into the role of a rebel.
But, God is the protector of the orphan and the widow, and five orphaned daughters need His help. With God, anything is possible. Even changing man's tradition.
Praise For Lioness: Mahlah's Journey (Tribes of Israel #4)…
"My expectations were blown right out of the water from page one...I am eagerly awaiting the next books in this series." —Jenna Van Mourik
"One of the reasons I enjoy reading Biblical fiction is the opportunity to take a deeper look at accounts of men and women spoken of in Scripture. And sometimes, being able to see things differently than I had pictured. I have often read about the daughters of Zelophehad and haven’t actually thought much about them. I mean, they asked Moses for an inheritance, he asked God, God said okay. Not much there, right? Depends on who is looking, I guess! Barbara M. Britton brought so much out of this Biblical account! I loved seeing her thoughts on what might have driven the girls to make such a bold request. It had never occurred to me that to have them approach Moses instead of the leader of their tribe was a huge break from tradition. Or that the elders just might not have appreciated their request. Or the way this affected them afterward. I loved the gentle Mahlah who was fierce when it came to protecting her sisters and loved ones. She was given the nickname Lioness by an unexpected source, and it was well deserved. This sweet young girl was an imperfect heroine with a tic in her eye and was considered unattractive by her kinsmen. Quite a difference from many stories where the focus is on perfectly attractive characters! Her faith in the face of danger and difficulty was quite admirable. Whether you remember mention of the five daughters of Zelophehad or are merely curious about their identity, I highly recommend this delightful story full of insight and history. And a little romance, too!" —Phyllis Helton, Among the Reads
"[...] an effortless read, one that is sure to inspire you to deeper faith in the God who cares for the orphan in distress. I highly recommend this book [...]” —Corey Stumne, Pastor and author of The Man Called Messiah
