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 Half of it is a previously unpublished Laurie R. King short story; the other half is the author’s commentary on the text (“Jephthah’s Daughter” of Judges 11) with some suggestions for further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