Sinners and the Sea: The Untold Story of Noah's WifeRebecca Kanner
Cursed with a birthmark that many think is the brand of a demon, the young heroine in The Sinners and the Sea is deprived even of a name for fear that it would make it easier for people to spread lies about her. But this virtuous woman has the perfect voice to make one of th... Read More
Desperate to keep her safe, the woman's father gives her to the righteous Noah, who weds her and takes her to the town of Sorum, a land of outcasts. Noah, a 600-year-old paragon of virtue, rises to the role of preacher to a town full of sinners. Alone in her new life, Noah's wife gives him three sons, but is faced with the hardship of living with an aloof husband who speaks more to God than with her. She tries to make friends with the violent and dissolute people of Sorum while raising a brood that, despite a pious upbringing, have developed some sinful tendencies of their own. But her trials are nothing compared to what awaits her after God tells her husband that a flood is coming and that Noah and his family must build an ark so that they alone can repopulate the world.
Kanner weaves a masterful tale that breathes new life into one of the Bible's voiceless characters. Through the eyes of Noah's wife we see a complex world where the lines between righteousness and wickedness blur. And we are left wondering: Would I have been considered virtuous enough to save?

- Not Biblical by Susan Kay on 5/24/2014
This book is not biblical and makes Noah out to be a foolish character. I am disappointed that a Christian organization would sell it. It promotes anti-Christian views. One example is where Noah's Son impregnates his brother’s wife. Noah’s wife and sons kill people to keep them off the ark. There are other boats with people on them during the storm, thus other possible survives besides Noah’s family. Too bad I could not give this book a zero rating. I cannot recommend reading it, a waste of time and money!
