Only a river separates Acsah, Othniel and friends from the long-awaited Promised Land. Their parent’s generation is gone, but against all odds, they survived the gut-wrenching rebellion, plague, and war initiated by Balaam’s Curse.Looking to the future beyond the Jordan with fiercely bright hope, they prepare to leave the sorrows of the Valley of Acacias behind forever. What could possibly go wrong? . . . Merely a volatile king, the crazed captain of Jericho’s efficiently evil troops, labyrinthine caves, raging flood waters, and hovering over all, an evil force determined to stop the crossing that would change the world.
“I don’t know when I’ve read work by an author who can make you feel and experience the sliminess of sin and the pure essence of God in all his white-light holiness. I wouldn’t have thought it possible to put the reader right in the middle of Old Testament happenings, but C. L. Smith has done it.” —Inger J. Logelin
