Naomi is a young girl living in Damascus who runs away from home because of her violent step father.
The story traces her many adventures as she travels to Jerusalem and struggles to survive alone. The biblical events woven into the story begin at the cross where 'Discovering the hidden lamb' (Gill Jacobs' first book) ends. Naomi is caught up in the events in Jerusalem following the resurrection of Jesus. These events are seen through Naomi's eyes as she struggles with the theme
of forgiveness. Can she forgive those who have treated her so badly? This book has been written to help children to understand what life was like for the early church, and the importance of being forgiven and of forgiving others.
