All but invisible in biblical prose but a story waiting to be told, Mindful, by Barbara Green recounts the little-known journey of exiles returning to a homeland they’ve never seen. A stunning testament to responsible imagination, this is historic fiction at its finest. Beautifully wrought, the tale starts in the year 535 BCE and follows Tizkor, along with her three children, as they journey home from exile in Babylon to make a fresh start. The long road skirting the desert’s edge and the winter weather allow them to reflect on their past hardships, present struggles, and dream about what lies ahead as they seek to reconcile the differences between the lives they have lived and the days which lie before them. Borrowing beloved language from biblical Deuteronomy, each character shapes his or her own experience through the ancient language, at the same time enriching it with the insight gained through hardship.

"Yours is the challenge to make our past urgently present and our present deeply drawn in the past, so that nothing is lost."
On the surface Mindful is the story of a journey: it's 535 B.C.E. and about forty people are returning from the Babylonian Captivity to Jerusalem. It is fascinating to see how the group lives and manages such a trek - the American pioneers crossing the heart of the continent must have had it easy by comparison - not only in terms of daily life but more importantly, in terms of how they deal with their past, with their traditions, somewhat in abeyance during the years in Babylon, that they will be looking to as they start life in anew in Judah. There to assist them with this challenge is Tizkor, who has a remarkable gift: she can enter what she calls the Caves of Memory. This wonderful image suggests a vast and mysterious storehouse of stories and songs, phrases and poems that her remote forebears had spoken. It's not clear to Tizkor precisely how this old and deep knowing of the Caves works. Her challenge is to not only find there what will be useful to a particular situation, but also to share it with the group, and to encourage them to regard it, reshape it, reinterpret it for their present circumstances. Sometimes in the process she learns a new story which can be added to the Caves; and the reshapings are clearly stored there as well. It is dynamic. To the 21st century reader, what we are seeing is the Bible before it became the Bible; how it might have developed in oral tradition, and how a mostly illiterate people would have accessed the material and ultimately shaped it into what we have today.
A crisis of sorts occurs when the possibility of writing things down emerges. This has not been an issue to date as hardly anyone can read. But this is starting to change. Tizkor initially resists, championing the fluidity and flexibility of the material as she finds it in the Caves. Those who do not have her gift, but could learn to read, press for a clear version, accessible to all. To those of us accustomed to the Bible as a book hundreds of years old, and easily available to most people, this is an astonishing argument!
These considerations of the use, power, vitality and importance of the past are the heart of the book. And the reader is invited to enter into the process as well. We are reminded that this exact sort of engagement with the wisdom of the past is available and necessary to us today.
But there's a good story here as well, and many engaging characters for whom we come to care in the course of the book. An enjoyable and thought-provoking read.

Barbara Green's Mindful is not only a most engaging read but also represents a truly remarkable work of scholarship that brings ancient biblical history and current modes of textual anaylsis to modern readers in a format that maintains and inspires great interest. Readers will find that the characters and situations she presents in her book continue to resonate boldly. Readers are inspired and encouraged to ask and to see how ancient stories are shaped and crafted and re-crafted. Far from an "historical novel" based in biblical times, this work represents a most astute example of current scholarship based on the author's own expertise in not only bilical studies but text analysis. An excellent and engaging read!
