A long-lost novel by the author of As a Driven Leaf
Infidelity, faith, and power all come together in a gripping story of the biblical prophet Hosea and his wife, Gomer.
When Milton Steinberg died in 1950, he left one manuscript tantalizingly unfinished. Set against a backdrop of unrest in ancient Israel, The Prophet's Wife is a stirring portrait of the young prophet Hosea, his free-spirited wife Gomer, and a people seduced by the lures of power and idolatry.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ari L. Goldman is the author of The Search for God at Harvard and Being Jewish, and the former religion correspondent for the New York Times.
"A sixty-year-old posthumous gift from the author of As a Driven Leaf, which was perhaps the most important Jewish novel of the twentieth century. Milton Steinberg's insights into the tormented, sexually betrayed, and perennially forgiving Hosea ring true and present a full-bodied portrait of a major figure who until now was just a name."---Rabbi Joseph Telushkin
"A glorious new novel emerges --unfinished, cut off by mortality; nevertheless equally powerful in its living imagery, passion, and humanity.---Cynthia Ozick
"The greatest voice of the American pulpit reaches out to us from the past. The discovery of a new work by Milton Steinberg is a gripping and wondrous event."--- Rabbi David J. Wolpe
