Based on the apocryphal Book of Judith.Publishers Weekly praises the authors research into the period aroumd 350-100 BCE and the inclusion of abundant detail regarding the customs, clothing, and lives of Hebrew villagers, the behaviors of Assyrian warriors, and perceptions and treatment of women. Faithful widow Judith, grieving and childless, befriends the Assyrian defector Achior, whose message from Nebuchadnezzars general, Holofernes, to Judiths village of Bethulia is Surrender or die.

As Holofernes lays siege to the village, Judith receives visions from God and pleas from her friends to help save the village. In danger of rape and death, she overcomes fear through faith and ritual, with the support of her maid, Abra- Achior- and the generals slave. Her defeat of Holofernes forms the satisfying climax of this occasionally slow-moving but always well-imagined novel.
