Why do bad things happen?

In Where I Belong, by Rebecca Kenney, six-year-old Miu is taken from her home by a band of raiders and sold to Abraham as a slave for his wife Sarah. The years and miles pass quickly as Abraham's camp travels away from Miu's home. She resigns herself to life as a slave, remembering that life with the raiders would have been far worse. She grows close to Hagar, a young Egyptian woman who reminds her of home. Hagar's son, Ishmael, is to inherit Abraham's kingdom. But when Sarah, Abraham's wife, bears a son, Ishmael loses his inheritance. Miu's world hangs in the balance. She wonders about this God Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, and Ishmael serve. If he's so good, why does he keep taking things away? Where I Belong is a fascinating story of what it would have been like to travel with Abraham's camp. I enjoyed seeing this biblical hero through the eyes of a slave girl. Her questions about God are honest and explore that popular question: if God is so good, why do bad things happen? Miu learns to look for the good in every situation and finds where she belongs. Recommended.
