Note: 
A suspenseful novel about Noah and the flood, told by Timna, Noah's daughter. She is a fictional character, not mentioned in the Bible, and this is a modern interpretation of the biblical story. Along with Timna, her three brothers, their wives, Timna's mother, and even some of the suffering animals tell the tale from their various points of view, each in a distinctive voice. Noah does not speak, and he is portrayed as a religious fanatic who is not as blameless as he is in the Bible. Powerful language and imagery are used to tell the story, which is horrific, tragic, but also a little hopeful. In a time of natural disasters such as tsunamis and hurricanes, it is a timely and engrossing story.
