Sample text

Abdias showers his new wife with treasures; however, his happiness is shortlived when he contracts smallpox. Pockmarks disfigure the beauty of his features and Deborah is unable to hide her disgust. Having lost Deborah’s love, Abdias strives the more for riches, combining trading skills with those of a warrior. His envied successes, however, end when his powerful enemy, Melek, sacks the Jewish village. Abdias’s neighbours blame him for the destruction and demand reparations. In the midst of this misery, Deborah gives birth to a daughter and they name her Ditha.

When Ditha is almost full grown, her eyesight is restored by the shock from a stroke of lightning. Abdias ceases trading; instead, he takes up farming and devotes himself to teaching his daughter. A few years of great happiness follow. Yet, as unexpectedly as they came, good fortune and happiness cease, for when Ditha is 16 and starting to discover love, she is killed by a flash of lightning. Her death leaves Abdias in a daze, but after several years he suddenly recovers and seeks the long-postponed revenge on his enemy, Melek.
