Book Summary (from Goodreads)

Relates the biblical story of Rahab, the spies, and the fall of Jericho as recorded in the book of Joshua from the perspective of young Talia, whose father Yakesh is one of Rahab’s brothers.


This is a Christian fiction novel. Let me start with that. So if you don’t enjoy biblically based stories, this probably isn’t the book for you. The book is also classified as Young Adult, but I think it would be better suited as a middle grade or children’s novel. Perhaps it was, and I just misread the labeling. Its possible. The language of this book is far too simplistic for any teenager I know. 

That being said, I did not finish the book. It was overly simplistic for me, and I couldn’t quite bring myself to finish. It had more to do with there being other more interesting books out there that I’d started, and I wanted to read them, rather than this. What I did read was good, it just couldn’t hold my attention. If you have younger kids, and you want to introduce them to this story, then it might be a good pick for you.
