Book Review - "Rebekah"

"Rebekah," book 2 in Jill Eileen Smith's Wives of the Patriarchs series, is a must-read for historcial fiction and/or Biblical fiction readers!  Rebekah comes to live in this book as her story is shared - the heartache, betrayal, hope and love that she fights for.  Rebekah's father has passed away leaving her in the care of her brother Laban.  Rebekah has hope for moving on and for love when she gets the chance to marry Isaac.  This book takes us on this journey with not only Rebekah but also Isaac and Abraham as well.  I have heard this story and read it several times in my Bible; however after reading this book I have a whole new perspective on the characters especially Rebekah and am excited to go back and read the Biblical account once again.  Jill's style of writing is so easy to read and I always get pulled right into the story and the characters lives and stay there until the very last page. 

“Available February 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
