Author Wynell Brooks Hutson believes she has discovered the Fountainhead of Women's Rights in what some might consider a most unexpected place. She has woven it into this fascinating story of the five daughters of a leader in Manasseh, one of the twelve tribes of Israel. The nation is nearing the end of its prolonged wandering in the wilderness after having refused forty years before to enter the land God promised them. Moses and the Israelites follow the leading of the pillar of cloud and fire. With the help of a few good men, these girls deal with an obsessed father, raiding and infiltrating enemies, the judgments of Jehovah, and efforts of tribal leaders to deny them their inheritance in God's division and allotment of the land we now call Israel.
