Note: 
Similar to Anita Diamant's popular adult novel, The Red Tent, this is an epic set in biblical times, told in the voice of a girl whose family reluctantly joins Noah in building the ark. Re Jana is a healer who charms Ham, one of Noah's sons. The love relationship is presented with subtlety and it allows her to discover the real purpose of the large boat being built and to get a place on the ark. Powerful emotions are at play among the biblical characters, holding the mature reader's interest throughout.
