Teenage slave girl Faru’s life has been turned upside down when she discovers she’s been traded to a new master, forcing her to leave all she‘s ever known. Upon her arrival, Faru meets a friend, Cailean, who helps her adjust to life in the strange location. Life settles into a new pattern, and romance blossoms between the young friends. But as soon as they plan to get married, another proposal comes about – one that cannot be ignored. Being a slave means not always marrying who you love.
On a daring journey to heal her heart, Faru encounters the Existing One. Will she trust Him and do His bidding even if what He requests is so hard?
“The author has taken the story of Hagar from the Bible and has written a Biblical fiction story that I very much enjoyed.; I was pulled into Faru’s story from the first pages and the author has done a wonderful job of telling her story as she learns to put her faith in God.”
“Kandi Wyatt has taken historical fiction and elevated it to a higher level. Her world building pulls you in and puts you right in the middle of the adventure.”
Author debut: The One Who Sees Me is the story of a character in the book of Genesis. Her story is rather obscure with only a few spots that’s she’s even mentioned, yet her life is woven into a major character in the book. I’ve always felt a pull toward her story. When my Sunday School class studied the life of Abraham and it coincided with National Novel Writing Month, I decided to tell her tale.
