Abstract:

"Barbara Kreiger's narrative is the account of Clorinda Minor, a charismatic American Christian woman whose belief in the Second Coming prompted her to leave a comfortable life in Philadelphia in 1851 and take up agriculture in Palestine."--BOOK JACKET. "Following a failed prophecy that the End of Days would take place in October 1844, Mrs. Minor turned her attention to the Holy Land and announced that her mission was to teach the poverty-stricken Jews of Palestine to work the soil."--BOOK JACKET.

"Although Clorinda Minor's motivation was distinctly religious, her daily efforts were in the social realm. Her small farm was a unique settlement where Christians, Muslims, and Jews labored alongside one another. But the events detailed in Divine Expectations had tragic individual consequences and complex international repercussions."--BOOK JACKET.
