About the Book

All he wanted was his father’s approval

Chileab is born to privilege as the second-born of King David, but he still feels like an outcast. His crooked foot make it hard for him to do anything and although he enjoys being an advisor for his abba, he never feels like King David approves of him.

Born with unnaturally light hair, Rina loves helping her mother heal people around their small village. One day, her life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by two Amalekites bent on using her for her healing powers to make them rich.

When Chileab hears of the little girl who had been kidnapped, he goes off to find her, even though five years have passed.  He makes his way into the desert by himself. Can he find Rina? Will he learn that Adonai’s approval is all he needs? Will he learn to rely on more than just himself?

Rina flitted from plant to plant in her garden. Each one had a different use, though some healed in similar ways. Her mother would be happy to know that the one plant she needed most had decided to grow longer this season than it usually did. Rina made sure she picked every little bit of hyssop she could find.

As she picked, she hummed to herself. A habit her abba didn’t particularly care for, but which Ema never complained about it. She was nearly a woman, though still only ten, and her abba seemed to never think she would grow up.

The wind tugged at her skirts, and she tightened her grip on the basket, closing her hand on the leaves inside to keep them from blowing out. The leaves were too light to keep the basket from flying away if the wind grew too strong.

She smiled as she picked the last leaf. Now to return home with her bounty.

A hand came out of nowhere and covered her mouth. She tried to scream, but only the faintest squeal came out. She struggled to get away from the strong arms surrounding her.

The basket fell out of her hands and Rina’s first thought was of all the precious hyssop that would be wasted. Then a gruff voice hissed into her ear as he grabbed her waist with his free arm. “Be quiet, girl. Be quiet, and no harm will come to you.”

Rina’s heart raced, and she nodded. She stopped struggling in case that was part of being quiet. Her breath came in short gasps through her nose and her eyes stayed as wide as they could be.
