Publisher's Weekly Review

If you haven't read my latest book, The Serpent and the Staff yet, here's a review from Publisher's Weekly:

"The plot and pacing are masterful, and there is enough sex, betrayal, murder, and intrigue to keep the most skeptical readers breathlessly turning pages. Wood skillfully envisions a society set in biblical times, with people-trading, marrying and scheming in a thriving coastal town at the center of ancient trade routes, rendered in soft focus but with marvelous clarity and complexity." —Publishers Weekly

Im Auge Der Sonne

Zwischen Gehorsam und Rebellion: Eine verbotene Liebe führt die Heilerin Leah bis vor den Thron der Pharaonen.
Der neue Roman der Bestsellerautorin Barbara Wood entfaltet große Gefühle vor den Sehnsuchtsorten der Welt.

Leah möchte eine gehorsame Tochter sein. Sie soll den mächtigsten Kaufmann von Ugarit heiraten. Im Geheimen liebt sie jedoch David, den Kämpfer und Schriftgelehrten. Er lehrt Leah die Schriftzeichen, die er erfunden hat, damit sie ihre Heilrezepte aufzeichnen kann.
Doch dann wird Leah entführt. Verzweifelt folgt David ihrer Spur, und beide geraten in den Eroberungszug der Ägypter. Als Gefangene werden sie vor den Pharaonenthron gebracht. Im Angesicht der Sonnenkönigin Hatschepsut müssen Leah und David ihre Fähigkeiten beweisen – oder mit dem Leben bezahlen…

Para mis lectores de habla hispana, mi próximo libro ya está aquí.

Ugarit, Siria, 1450 a. C. La familia de Lea, hija de un próspero viticultor, tuvo que huir de su hogar en Jericó la noche en que los egipcios les invadieron. Aunque con dieciocho años la joven es considerada mayor para casarse, Jotam, un constructor de barcos acaudalado, pide su mano en matrimonio. Durante la ceremonia, ella le rechaza en público y él promete vengarse del ultraje. Cuando el escriba Daveed llega a la casa de Lea para trabajar en el negocio familiar, ambos sienten enseguida una fuerte atracción. Lo suyo no debería ser una relación de amor porque él se dedica en cuerpo y alma a su vocación, entrar en la sagrada Hermandad de los Escribas, y Lea a estudiar el poder curativo de las plantas. Sin embargo, tendrán que unir sus fuerzas y sus talentos para salvar de la miseria a la familia de Lea y para enfrentarse a una nueva invasión egipcia. La serpiente y el báculo es una gran historia de amor, de traición y de venganza llena de detalles fascinantes en una época que experimentó cambios profundos en toda su organización social.

Exciting Update

My latest book, SERPENT AND THE STAFF, (Turner Publishing) is available for pre-order at amazon.com

Ugarit, Syria, 1450 B.C.E. Eighteen-year-old Leah, the eldest daughter of a wealthy winemaker, is past the traditional age of betrothal. Vowed to wed the wealthy but cruel shipbuilder Jotham, Leah declines his offer of marriage after discovering that he and his family suffer from “the falling sickness.” Enraged by her refusal and his ruined reputation, he blackmails Leah’s father, a punishment forgiven only by offering Leah’s hand in marriage. With no more options for another suitor and no male heir for her family, Leah must seek out the cure for Jotham’s sickness or her family will face permanent ruin. During her quest Leah begins to burn with desire for Daveed, the handsome household scribe whose culture forbids their union. Daveed has been called by the gods to restore the Brotherhood, an elite fraternity of guardians at the great Library of Ugarit, rumored to contain the secret symbol of immortality within its ancient archives. If his plan succeeds, it may also save Leah’s family from disaster. But even Daveed and Leah cannot fathom the extent of Jotham’s sinister schemes to make Leah his bride once and for all. With rich historical detail, The Serpent and the Staff is a sweeping tale of love, betrayal, and how one family's faith can overcome the obstacles that life has in store for them.
