Morton manages to get so much into his books, that no matter what point of departure he indicates in his title, he includes bits about his travels, his research, his personality. Here are vignettes of some 20 or more women of the Old and New Testaments, the good and the bad, emphasizing the common humanity, the modernity, and the distinctive qualities of each. Romantic and quiet corners of Bible and ancient history, blended in deeds of courage, compassion, loyalty, hate and love. Check your sales on other Morton books in similar vein for market here.
