Bodie and Brock Thoene
Tyndale, Mar 2004, 22.99, 357 pp.
Mama suspected and when Lily turned twelve knew that her little darling suffered from tsara'at though papa remained in denial. Lily like all lepers is pronounced dead by her family and her villagers. She is forced to leave to live in exile in the Valley of Sorrows where all the lepers reside until they die.
Six years has passed since Lily stumbled into the Valley scared and alone. Now rumors abound that a great healer has been performing miracles. Some people are beginning to come around in support of and belief in Jesus, but some of the most powerful question this newcomer who is shaking the establishment. Lily is caring for a newborn and refuses to depart until the infant is properly placed even if it means saving her life and returning to her family or worse costing her the love of fellow outcast Cantor.
