Jill Eileen Smith has written another masterpiece with her Biblical fiction novel, "A Passionate Hope," which is book #4 in her Daughters of the Promised Land series. This is the story of Hannah whom is a person I have learned about in Sunday School and read her account in the Bible; however Jill's takes the story to a whole new level and gives so much more insight into her life. Hannah is barren for so long and this is horrible for a woman at this time and even worse is when her husband takes another wife and she immediately begins to bear children for him. Jill expounds on the Biblical account with historical details from her own research and research of others to really bring Hannah and her story to life in this book. Hannah is such a wonderful example for us still today on hope and patience and the power of prayer and seeking God. I highly recommend this book; be prepared to be transported back in time and to become completely immersed in this story.
