Jairus's Daughter is a literary-historic novel that sets up a rhythm between two women separated by twenty centuries. Their lives nonetheless mirror each other in subtle ways and finally intersect in modern Israel. Aviel, a scribe in first-century Israel, has a gift and a secret that, millennia later, will affect the choices of Anna Washington, a modern rock climbing woman searching for her heart's direction. Colorful characters and striking detail combine in this tale of passion and integrity from midrashic novelist Patti Rutka.
""Jairus's Daughter is a very thoughtful novel that explores the nature of human and divine love. Patti Rutka deftly weaves together an ancient and a modern love story, and brings them to a startling and challenging conclusion. This would be an excellent book for a group study occasion.""

""Ms.Rutka has raised the discussion of 'Sacred Healing' to a new level and at the same time has broadened the concept of Midrashic interpretation.""
