Leah is 5 years old. She is the sister of Rebecca and is a daughter of Daniel, a brave rebel fighter in Galilee.

Daniel is also a childhood friend of Samuel's and when his fighting puts the lives of his two children at risk, he sends them to live with Samuel's family.

Because she is so young, Leah doesn't always fully understand everything that's going on around her, but she's bright and adventurous and funny, too. As a result, she gets into more than her share of trouble, which sometimes puts the family's rebel connections at risk and even threatens their lives.

It's hard, however, not to forgive her.
