Re Jana and her parents have heard stories about a man building an enormous ship in the desert, and decide to leave their home to go there and find work. Re Jana's father becomes the right-hand man to desert patriach, Noah. Re Jana, an attractive girl on the verge of adulthood, teaches the people the benefits of pure clean water and fragrant oils. Ham, Noah's youngest son, succumbs to her charms, confiding in Re Jana that his god intends to submerge the world and that only Noah and his family will be saved. When the Flood finally arrives, Re Jana is smuggled on-board by Ham. Life on the ark is gruelling and dangerous but, when at last the ship runs aground, a pregnant Re Jana realises she will be instrumental in founding a new dynasty in a new world.

To compare Provoost's survivor of the flood to Diamante's Red Tent would do both a disservice. An interesting book - but it doesn't really absorb you in the feeling of life in a different time, as some historical fiction does.

Noah and the flood provide the background to Anne Provoost's memorable In the Shadow of the Ark, says Adèle Geras. It's told from the point of view of a young woman called Re Jana, who comes to the place where the Builder (he is never called Noah) has set up a kind of shipyard. Re Jana, her father and her crippled mother, together with a boy called Put, set up camp alongside the shipyard.

A somewhat interesting fictional account of the building and journey of Noah's ark. Written in the first person by the concubine of Ham, ReJana, the Biblical story is played out with a level of humanity and perspective that folks who read Genesis with reverence will probably take umbrage with.

Portraying the family of Noah as extremely failable, and at times even cruel, the story takes the reader from the salt marshes of Caanan to the desert where the ark is being built. The father of ReJana is a master shipwright, and he soon finds work assisting the sons of Noah in building the ark. In the interim, ReJana falls in love with Ham - creating an unsusatinable forbidden relationship - Ham being bethrothed to another. Taking the reader from the building through the flood scene and eventually to Ararat, the story moves along fairly well, with a couple of twists and turns along the way.

The story itself is pretty imaginative and creative view of the flood legend. The writing style is easy to follow, and while not a page-turner, is reasonably interesting read as well. There are just enough plot twists and characters to keep the interest of the reader. If you are a Biblical literalist, you will probably find this book heretical. If you are a dyed in the wool secularist, you will probably find this book both uninteresting and fanciful. If you understand the allegory of the Genesis story of Noah and have somewhat solid knowledge of the Bible story, you may find it an interesting read.

I really enjoyed this book. The author's imagination in creating a very believable world, full of incredible detail is amazing. The story is a simple one, taken from Noah's epic assignment to build an ark and fill it with pairs of animals to survive the Unnameable One's harsh judgment of his own creation. It would seem an impossible task to build a credible story around such a flimsy description provided by the book of Genesis, but somehow Anne Provoost does it and does it well and in a beautifully simple way. I was utterly charmed.

This book raised many uncomfortable questions. I find it easier, sometimes to just avoid the" other side of the story". For me it made me think.

I chose this book as a recommendation from someone. It was enjoyable reading but not one I couldn't put down.

I really did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped. I thought the plot line plodding and uninteresting. I have enjoyed other Anne Provoost's books more.

I used to feel compelled to finish every book I started. Now, I have a different practice. If I am not engaged within about 25 pages (give or take), I don't continue. This was the case with this book; but people respond differently to pieces of literature and this is one woman's opinion.
Not the Ark as we learned it. Good reading but very fiction. Not religious in any way. Stay with it. Good ending.
