06. A Jar of Pickled Fish – excerpt

863 BC

Samaria City, Samaria, Israel

Obadiah wheeled into the south side of Samaria City for his monthly inspection of olive groves.

His driver parked the oversize chariot next to the path at the house of Gera. As Obadiah’s chief grove manager, Gera supervised how managers planted, pruned, picked, and pressed olives.

Obadiah hopped down. “I’ll just be a minute.”

He pulled himself up into the chariot. “Take me to King Ahab.”
