Voyage of the Redeemed

VOYAGE OF THE REDEEMED tells the story of Noah’s call to build the Ark, and the opposition he and his family endured in a world riddled with depravity. Interwoven in the historical facts of the tale is plenty of intrigue, treachery and romance. The story culminates with the Great Flood and how the family of eight miraculously survived it. Voyage of the Redeemed is Deborah McDermott’s first novel and a tribute to Sean, who encouraged her to write the story in the first place. ISBN 978-1-907040-60-3. Available from Melrose Books.
