  • Through her skillful use of stories and Jewish midrash, McKenna introduces the reader to another side of Hannah, Esther, Rachel and Leah, Mary Magdalene and many others, including prophetesses and slaves. She emphasizes the life-giving qualities of these women and their relationships with God. The stories make us pause and reflect on new insights about our fore mothers in faith.
