A lively collection of four different stories of women only briefly mentioned in biblical tradition and religious texts, but never explored, women whose stories have been long forgotten . . .until now. Award-winning author Sasso brings to life Lilith, the first woman in Eden and for whom "night" is named in Hebrew; Serach, the wise musician whose song reveals to Jacob his son is alive; Bityah, who draws baby Moses from the Nile and with a mother's bravery encourages him to become who he will be; and the daughters of Z, who fight against discrimination with great daring and extraordinary results. All teach important values through their faith and actions.
