Cynthia Green about this book: From Pharaoh's Hand is a coming of age tale. Young Elizabeth Merriweather is a popular cheerleader who finds herself pregnant and scared. She attempts to run away from home only to be kidnapped by a redneck drug running jewel thief. The book is set in rural Tennessee, where the author lived for a year back in the late 80s. What awaits Elizabeth in the vast wilderness in which she finds herself? Can Elizabeth's faith in God save her from the clutches of her evil captor?
It is my hope that the novel will give young adult readers an opportunity to reconsider some of the choices they are compelled to make in life. Choices, chances, second chances, changes. Elizabeth experiences it all. As a devastating tornado rips through the tiny community of Linden, will Elizabeth and her baby be able to escape the fury of nature and of her captor and be rescued before the rising flood waters of the Buffalo River overtake them? Will Elizabeth find happiness and hope and redemption? Or will she be forced to remain a captive of Phineas "Catfish" Jones for the rest of her life...
