I read some of the books from Jill Smith's "Wives of David" series, so I was really looking forward to reading this one too, I find her books not only interesting but they also open up the stories and give you a new perspective on what the characters in the stories must have felt!
I love the story of Sarah and Abraham, I relate a lot to what Sarai went through in her "younger" years so I was very interested in reading this book and seeing her story from a different perspective! I have to say I wasn't disappointed, throughout the book we can see Sarai's struggle as she yearns to fulfill the promise she made to her husband during their wedding. As she's pressured to turn to the "occult" to try and fulfill the prophesy over her and Abraham we struggle with her to try and continue on the good and right path. This book has made it to a permanent spot on my book shelf, it was so well written that I could read it over and over again. The book while it lets you have an inside look to Sarai's struggles also encourages the reader through Sarai's story to keep their faith strong, and to trust in God's promises.
I loved this book, it was fantastic and I highly recommend it!
