“Mila’s Tale” is midrash—the retelling of a Biblical passage. Half of it is a new Laurie King short story; the other half is the author’s commentary on the text (“Jephthah’s Daughter” of Judges 11) and her suggestions for further reading. This is the first in Laurie King’s proposed Ladies of Spirit project, a collection of Modern Midrashes accompanied by her analysis and reflections.
