Although this book is biblical ficiton, it is not written from a spiritual perspective. There are sexual scenes and overtones. There also is graphic hygenic detail.
I think that this story is very differant from the real biblical story. It only follows the general story. It doesn't go along with the biblical character of Sarah at all.

This book is good for learning what life was like in that time period, but I have some serious problems with it. Sarai (she was not Sarah until she was old) and Abram (Abraham after he was old) were half brother and sister. This book is totally fiction and other than the time period and what it was like, it has no basis in reality. This author just took two names from the BIBLE and wrote a story with them.

Akin to The Red Tent, Sarah is the imagining of what the life of the wife of Abraham may have been like. Beautiful language, vivid, I loved it!

Read this awhile ago. This is a novel about an amazing woman, and it truly takes you back in time to the long-ago world that she lived in. It also gives you some clues to how and why our spiritual way of thinking came to be, although it's not a book about religion at all. This was a very thought-provoking read and an entertaining one as well, like watching a good epic mini-series with a female hero. I highly recommend it to others.

The first in a series of historical novels about women in the Old Testament. A well written story grounded in biblical source material

I thought it was awesome! It took me a few days, I kept putting it down and not caring about getting back into it, but after it got rolling I couldn't put it down and had to read it all that night. Very entertaining story!
