As a young woman, Rebekah leaves Haran (Iraq), her family and her cherished Grandma Milcah as a young woman. The long journey culminates in her betrothal to Izaak, son of Abraham-the tribe leader. She masters a new language, new traditions and new spiritual beliefs; yet retains her impetuous, decisive nature. As a mother of twin boys she can see their strengths and weaknesses. Machinations turn into justification as she is driven to deception in order to ensure the success of her new tribe.
