    Review quote
    "A powerful and unique take on the biblical story, "Wisdom's Daughter" brings readers into the biblical world through a feminist perspective. Edghill's strong female characters, good and evil, leave their mark on history and on us. Edghill opens new vistas for readers and makes us think more about the matriarchs, not just the patriarchs, of the Bible. Brava!"--"Romantic Times BookClub Magazine" "Vividly evoking ancient Israel and Sheba, Edghill deftly transforms the brief biblical account into an absorbing story replete with intrigue, love, and villains. . . . Persuasive and intriguing."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Think "The Red Tent, " only much better."--"Rocky Mountain News" (Denver) ""Wisdom's Daughter" will appeal to the "Red Tent" crowd, both for its emphasis on the role of women in ancient Israel and for the author's ability to bring history to life. Edghill transforms a didactic fable, the story of King Solomon and his brief interaction with the Queen of Sheba, into a powerful love story."--Jennifer Baker, "Booklist"
