Rachel by Jill Eileen Smith- My Favorite Wives of the Patriarchs Series so far!
In the breath of a moment... love lingers....
Rachel and Leah, sisters, are each vying for the attention of Jacob, who has come in search of a wife. Each sister has her own agenda, her own longings, her own needs and their father and his wives have another. A very creative, tender and touching read, familiar yet at times seeming different and one that comes full circle while portraying the biblical story accurately. I was highly entertained by this fast moving novel. Realistic characters seemed to come alive within the storyline from the beginning and do not lose momentum keeping the reader interested and turning the pages. Accurate picturesque scenery captures the mind promising no dull or dragging parts. I feel this novel can be enjoyed by all readers seeking a historical biblical read. 5 Stars! I received a complimentary copy from Revell for my review during this blog tour.
