This piece is a freebie from Abby's new book, "The Words of the Wives; monologues from the unheard women of the Bible" published by Authentic, which is available to buy online and in Christian bookshops. Abby's website contains more info and freebies - Here's the blurb about the book:

"Behind every great man there's a woman who has to put up with him; the charming and frank WAGs of 26 Bible characters speak out in this quirky collection of monologues to read alone, read aloud or to perform. There are a couple for Christmas, several for Easter and a wide variety from the rest of the Bible narrative.

Jeff Lucas says: 'With words that sparkle and rare insight, this terrific book will nudge audiences to laugh, cry and, most of all, understand. More than a mere resource, it's a gift. Don't miss it.' "
