PROVIDENCE: HANNAH'S JOURNEY
As the sole daughter of the chief priest, Hannah is publicly shamed when the prophet of Israel refuses to heal her deformities. To save the family’s reputation, her father betroths her to the only man bold enough to wed her—a priest three times her age with numerous children.
Determined to restore her family’s honor, Hannah escapes Jerusalem to track down the prophet and find out what she needs to do to be healed. Gilead, a young Hebrew guard sympathetic to her plight, willingly accompanies her. On their way to Mahanaim, they are captured by a band of raiders. Hannah is forced to serve in the household of the commander of the Aramean army, an officer who is in need of healing himself. Meanwhile Gilead is being used as sword practice for the Aramean soldiers. Hannah must act fast to save herself and Gilead. But survival may mean finding the prophet of Israel and coaxing him to heal an enemy army commander.
Inspired by the servant girl in II Kings 5

BUILDING BENJAMIN: NAOMI'S JOURNEY
Coming this spring...Love Grows Where God Grafts the Tender Shoot.
Naomi desires to dance well enough to catch the eye of a wealthy landowner. Her father needs a substantial bride price due to the deaths of her brothers at the hands of the tribe of Benjamin. But when Benjamites raid the Ephraimite feast and capture young girls, Naomi is bound and carried from her home by Eliab, a troubled shepherd who needs a wife. As Naomi awaits rescue, she finds Eliab has a strong faith in God and a just reason for abducting her. A reason that affects all the tribes of Israel. The future of the tribe of Benjamin hangs in the balance, but if Naomi follows her heart and stays with Eliab to re-build his lineage, she must forfeit her family and become a traitor to her own tribe.
Inspired by Judges 19-21
