Sarai: A Novel By Jill Eileen Smith

About the book:
Sarai, the last child of her aged father, is beautiful, spoiled, and used to getting her own way. Even as a young girl, she is aware of the way men look at her, including her half-brother Abram. When Abram finally requests Sarai's hand, she asks one thing--that he promises never to take another wife as long as she lives. Even her father thinks the demand is restrictive and agrees to the union only if Sarai 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?
Jill Eileen Smith is the author of the bestselling Michal, Abigail and Bathsheba, all part of The Wives of King David series. She has more than twenty years of writing experience, and her writing has garnered acclaim in several contests. Her research into the lives of biblical women has taken her from the Bible to Israel, and she particularly enjoys learning how women lived in Old Testament times. Jill lives with her family in southeast Michigan.
My thoughts:
I'll be the first to admit that I am not always faithful in doing devotions or Bible reading, but I've found that reading novels like this one, re-awaken my interest in Bible stories. I really enjoy reading fiction novels based on Bible characters or Bible stories. While I know that they are adapted to make for an even better novel, I really enjoy comparing the novel to the actual story in the Bible. I am grateful for authors like Jill Eileen Smith and Mesu Andrews, amonth others, who write beautiful stories that are enjoyable to read and re-awaken my hunger to learn more.

Available March 2012  at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
