The story of Noah and the ark is retold with care and precision in Anne Provoost's novel. Re Jana, a girl from the faraway marshes, travels with her family for many weeks through the hot desert without encountering any society. Then, one day, they come across a thriving village in the midst of building a humongous ship for no apparent reason. (Remember, they are in the middle of the desert.) Re Jana learns that a great flood is coming to wipe out all evil on the Earth, save those who board the ark.
