So there's a thread in the Historical Fiction forum about biblical fiction.  In which they talk about, among others, Marek Halter and Rebecca Kohn's books.  And I realized that I never would have thought about them as biblical fiction; I guess because the phrase itself seems christian to me.   I guess I just thought of ours as midrash, LOL!

Anyway, I love those books!  Who else does?  Who are some other good Jewish authors with these kinds of books?

I went to Goodwill yesterday and picked up a copy of SARAH by Orson Scott Card.  (not a Jewish author).  He has written three books of a series "WOMEN OF GENESIS".  The other two are REBEKAH and RACHEL.   

Haven't read it yet, but its on my TBR list (along with a gazillion more).

I'll be interested to hear what you think of them.  He's a pretty religious Christian, so I imagine they'll follow the Christian bible rather than Torah.
