by Jill Eileen Smith
Wives of the Patriarchs Series Book 2
Can love heal the rift between two souls?
When her beloved father dies and she is left in the care of her conniving brother Laban, Rebekah knows her life has changed forever. Though she should be married by now, it’s clear that Laban is dragging his feet, waiting for a higher bride-price to line his pockets. When she is given a chance to leave her home to marry Isaac, a cousin she has never even seen, Rebekah’s hope for the future is restored. Little does she know what a wondrous and heart-wrenching journey she is beginning.
As Rebekah experiences the joy of young love and the bitterness of misunderstanding and betrayal, her resolve will be tested. When the rift between her and Isaac grows so wide it is surely too great to be mended, can she trust the God of Isaac’s father Abraham to bridge the gap?

My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
In past novels of Jill’s, I’ve loved how she made Bible characters come alive as normal people I could relate to. Rebekah is no exception. Without giving away any spoiler, the novel deals with difficult subject the Bible glosses over like how Sara and Issac handled Issac being offered as a sacrifice, why Rebekah felt she needed to betray her husband to coax him to carry out God’s plan, and how their marriage fared the betrayal. I highly recommend this novel.
