Christian Historical Fiction Contest: Pearl in the Sand

From the first moment I saw this breathtaking cover, I knew I had to read this book some day. While my copy is still in the mail, thanks to Moody Publishers, I have 3 copies to giveaway to my readers.
Teaser blurb courtesy of Goodreads: "At the age of fifteen Rahab is forced into prostitution by her beloved father. In her years as a courtesan, she learns to mistrust men and hate herself. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walks Salmone, a respected leader of Judah. Through the tribulations of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another’s worth in God and find healing from fear and rejection."
