The Levite's Concubine
by Viye Raines
Viye Raines' novel is an engrossing retelling of the most bizarre and savage chapter in the entire Bible — Judges Chapter 19.
Told with striking historical detail, one of the most ancient parts of the Old Testament comes alive, opening with the concubine fleeing her master and closing with the her startling and unforgettable destruction.
Affecting and intimate, unrestrained and ghastly, The Levite's Concubine combines rich storytelling with an original insight into Biblical history and women's roles in a compelling time and place — about 1000 years BCE — in the land that would become Israel.
The fiction of Viye Raines is published in the imprint Gothic World Literature Editions
