Fans of Jill Eileen Smith who have been waiting for the second book in the Wives of the Patriarchs series, will be thrilled that the wait is over. If you enjoy Biblical fiction, you will LOVE these books! I have not been disappointed by any of Jill's books - each one has been fantastic.
Her stories bring the Bible to life and are filled with rich history and customs. While she takes some liberty with her characters and plots, she is very consistent and stays true to the scriptural accounts. I really like how she fleshes out the stories and develops the characters. Up until this point, Bathsheba in The Wives Of King David series has been my favorite. Rebekah ran a close second. I enjoyed every page of this book and really enjoyed the slight twist that Jill put into this story. Rebekah came to life for me, while reading this and I understood the story much better after reading this book. I highly recommend Jill's books for anyone who enjoys biblical fiction.
