Noah’s Wife by T.K. Thorne is an epic journey through one woman’s life that captivates the reader from the very first page. One thing I’d like to say is that this is not a Bible based story. It is a biblical novel in that Noah is one of our characters but it is more about the fictional tale of the life his wife might have had, keeping in mind that absolutely nothing is known of Noah’s wife in the bible. T.K. Thorne has built an amazing world with memorable characters and a story not soon forgotten.
Na’amah’s only wish in life is to be a shepherdess in the hills of Turkey. It is where she feels most comfortable and free. Na’amah doesn’t fit in with her people as she has Aspergers although that wasn’t known at that time in history. As with most women of that time Na’amah’s life wasn’t her own as she battled with understanding why her brother hated her while also being blessed with the love of two men. However Na’amah’s path to a peaceful life is a rocky one. She endures a disturbing incident that causes her to run away from all she’s ever known and in doing that she gets kidnapped. This really is the beginning of Na’amah’s journey to learning about herself and awakening to her world. The journey brings to light the separation of people in worshiping either Father God or Mother Goddess and I found it all very fascinating.
Na’amah is a wonderful character. Despite the challenges she has with her illness she still possesses a great strength within her and many gifts she struggles to understand. The relationship with her best friend Yanner who loved her was a beautiful one as was her life with Noah. One of my favorite characters was Na’amah’s grandmother Savta. Though she was a woman she still had a voice and she protected Na’amah with her life. I finished this book days ago and the characters are still alive in mind – that’s when I know I’ve read something memorable.
Noah’s Wife is a beautifully written novel and so well researched. The author did a wonderful job of bringing this time and place alive for her readers. I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Melissa Carey and I thought she did a really good job. At first I wasn’t so sure about her for the telling of this story but it wasn’t long until I realized she was just perfect for it. Noah’s Wife is a novel that I enjoyed a great deal and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Thank you for such a well written review. You hit things of major importance without any spoilers! One of my favorite characters was Inka. I hope your readers enjoy the novel and will share who their favorite characters were. I also think you were right on about the audio version. Melissa Carey did a wonderful job, but the prologe was truly difficult to get the tone just right.
