They both have dreams they can’t fulfill…
All Hadassah wants is to learn to become a good wife and mother. But she daydreams too much and forgets to do the things her mother tells her. Gidal dreams of becoming a priest in the temple in Jerusalem, but he isn’t of the tribe of Levi.
Despite these problems, they have a bigger one. Their parents, Ehud and Jerusha, owe a debt and cannot pay. Priestess Basmat of En-dor has given them two years of leniency and can’t give them more. She offers to take Gidal and Hadassah for two years as slaves until the debt is atoned for.
Ehud and Jerusha are given no option and must give up their children. Priestess Basmat works them hard, but there are two other servants to divide the load with, so they cope well. Then King Saul comes in disguise requesting the priestess’s other services—as a medium.
Will Gidal and Hadassah trust Adonai to take care of them? Will Priestess Basmat become more medium or priestess in the end?
