"The Prophetess"

"The Prophetess" by Jill Eileen Smith is Deborah's Story and the second book in the Daughters of the Promised Land series. 
What I love about Jill's novels is her ability to bring to life the Biblical time period, the physical setting, the style of life and the individuals whom fill the pages of the Bible.  "The Prophetess" is no exception as right away I was drawn into the story and the land and Deborah's life.  Deborah and her story are so fascinating to me as she was living in an arranged marriage and in general living a life so different from what is norm in today's society.  However, she was given such a huge role and such a honor by God and was able to play such an influence in so many lives.  At this same time Deborah is still dealing with her past and the horrors that took place and now she is forced out of her comfort zone and follows her heart and head listening to God. 
I absolutely loved this book, it is an amazing account and evident of the amount of research and study that was put into it.  I highly recommend this to anyone whom enjoys historical fiction.
