About the Book

This is an intriguing, fictional account, one meant to stir the imagination of anybody, especially of an Old Testament reader. So many times we read a verse, and go right on to the next, and never meditate on what we have just read. Much of this story is fiction, imagined from meditating on two such verses. II Kings 5:2,3 mention a servant girl of Naaman's wife. Neither are ever named. However, the girl is brave enough to tell her mistress of a prophet in the country of Samaria, which is in the Kingdom of Israel, who is able to heal Naaman of his leprosy. Naaman was the captain of the Syrian Army around 850 B.C. In the account of the war between Syria and Israel, as recorded in I Kings 15, God gave Captain Naaman the victory over Israel. In II Kings 5, it is written that Naaman was a mighty man of valor, but was a leper.

So who was this servant girl, and where did she come from?

This is a story, and only a story. Let your imagination flow with the possibility of what might have been...
