Rebekah by Jill Eileen Smith * A Review

When her father dies and she is left in the care of her conniving brother Laban, Rebekah knows her life has changed forever. Her hope for the future is restored when she falls in love with her cousin Isaac, and their relationship starts strong. But marital bliss cannot last forever, and the birth of their twin sons marks the beginning of years of misunderstanding, disagreement, and betrayal. The rift between them grows wider and wider until it is surely too deep to be mended. And yet, with God all things are possible.

Join bestselling author Jill Eileen Smith as she fills in the blanks around the biblical women behind the men we know well. Her in-depth research and creative storytelling bring Rebekah's unique story alive with romance, heartache, and the power of forgiveness.

   Jill Eileen Smith is a wonderful storyteller and has a great imagination. Her story of Rebekah from the account in the Bible is really interesting.  I probably would have had a few things different if I wrote the story, but everyone is different.
   I like how this book portrays Rebekah as independent and full of life and spunk.
  The love story between Rebekah and Isaac is very special and tender.  The scenes were described brilliantly. You feel like you are there.
  I think Rebekah is a book worth reading for enjoyment and also to help us understand how things can change in a marriage. The ending is excellent. I highly recommend this book.
