More About Sylvia Bambola

But the memory of those years in Germany inspired her to write Refiner's Fire, which won a Silver Angel Award, and was a Christy Finalist. Her frequent moves as an "army brat" gave her an opportunity to see America and fall in love with her new country. Bambola has authored seven novels, has two grown children, teaches women's Bible studies, and is learning the guitar.
Sylvia Bambola currently resides in the state of Florida.

A superbly crafted novel of the first order Apr 3, 2004
Sylvia Bambola's Waters Of Marah is the novel of Gloria Bickford, a young woman who feels inadequate compared to the legend of her actress and beauty queen mother. In what Gloria feels is a response to the call of God, she leaves behind life her in tiny hometown and experiences the ways of the city - yet when Gloria is caught in a crucible that pits business and emotional interests against one another, her true purpose in striking out on her own may turn out to be dramatically different than what she expected. A superbly crafted novel of the first order, Waters Of Marah is very highly recommended reading.
