A Novel of Rav Hisda's DaughterBook - 2014
"The most powerful practitioner of these mysterious arts is Rav Hisda's daughter, whose innate awareness allows her to possess the skills men lack. With her husband, Rava--whose arcane knowledge of the secret Torah enables him to create a "man" out of earth and to resurrect another rabbi from death--the two brave an evil sorceress, Ashmedai, the demon king, and even the Angel of Death in their quest to safeguard their people, even while putting their romance at risk. The author of the acclaimed Rashi's Daughters series and the award-winning Rav Hisda's Daughter: Book I, Apprentice has conjured literary magic in the land where "abracadabra" originated. Based on five years of research and populated with characters from the Talmud, Enchantress brings a pivotal era of Jewish and Christian history to life from the perspective of a courageous and passionate woman."-- Provided by publisher.
