On Tour 4/14/20- 6/9/20 ”Mountain Of Full Moons” by Irene Kessler


Release Date: April 14, 2020

About The Book: 

Thirteen-year-old Elisha lives in a village near Shechem in the Land of Canaan in ancient Israel. She wants to be like other girls but is unmarried, speaks to an angel, and composes and sings her own songs―a pursuit her parents disapprove of. When she tells the village women to stand up for themselves, the men are outraged and the tribe banishes her. After journeying alone through the desert, escaping bandits, wild animals, and men who would sell her as a servant, Elisha makes it to Jerusalem, where the angel guides her to study with Abraham and Sarah. She learns much including reading and writing, and Abraham even gives her Doron, his servant, to accompany her as she sings her songs throughout the country. Doron becomes her lover and her songs are well accepted―until she sings one about equality for women. Mountain Full of Moons explores how we overcome our fears, go out into the world, and gain the courage to speak up and be whom we choose to be.
