The Bible is filled with women of faith, bravery; and cunning. Here is one woman's tale -- as it might have happened....

Abigail of Carmel hopes against hope that someday she'll marry for love and have children --but her family needs her at home, for they're in dire straits. So dire, in fact, that when her brother cannot pay the pitiless Nabal his gambling losses, Abigail knows she must forgo her dream in order to help her brother. To repay the debt, she convinces boorish Nabal the Fool to marry her....

She vows to be a devoted wife --a hard promise to keep when Nabal exiles her to the countryside to herd his sheep. But Abigail begins to love the weathered prairie and its people--particularly David, the warrior son of Jesse, who has taken her under his wing. But when David and Nabal come face-to-face in a senseless war, Abigail sees that the tentative peace she's worked for could crumble like the very soil beneath her feet....
