Sarai: Book Review

   Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith

This book was given to me to read and review by
Revell.  The opinion are mine and mine alone.

This is the first in the Wives of Patriarchs Sersies.
This is a fictional story about the Biblical Character of
Sarai and Abram.

I enjoyed the story.  It gave a real vivid history
of the life style of that time frame.  At first I did not know what to make of what I was reading, so I did a little digging into the history of that time... I am glad I did!  Another Great book from Jill Eileen Smith.

I can't wait until  Jill's next book.

He promised her his heart. She promised him a son. But how long must they wait?
When Abram finally requests the hand of his beautiful half sister Sarai, she asks one thing--that he promise never to take another wife as long as she lives. Even Sarai's father thinks the demand is restrictive and agrees to the union only if she makes a promise in return--to give Abram a son and heir. Certain she can easily do that, Sarai agrees.
But as the years stretch on and Sarai's womb remains empty, she becomes desperate to fulfill her end of the bargain, lest Abram decide that he will not fulfill his. To what lengths will Sarai go in her quest to bear a son? And how long will Abram's patience last?
Combining in-depth research and vivid storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the beautiful and inscrutable Sarai in this remarkable story of love, jealousy, and undaunted faith.

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
