This is a work of creative fiction that seeks to give light to one of the difficult questions posed by Job that is rarely addressed. This story is from the perspective of the female characters in the Book of Job, particularly the daughters. It looks at the impact the trials had on Job’s family, and how it would affect a young girl to find out that she was a replacement for another human being. This story is placed in the modern day, as Job is a book that can easily be placed in any time period.
