    Book details

Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she'll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonaiand those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan's armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God's calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?With her trademark impeccable research and her imaginative storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the story of Israel's most powerful woman in a novel that is both intriguing and inspiring.

"At last, the mystical figure of Deborah comes to life! Jill Eileen Smith gives vivid voice to the women at the center of Israel's victory over Canaan. A tale of strength and faith that bears relevance even today. Not to be missed!"--Tosca Lee, New York Times bestselling author

    Deborah's daughter reminded me of myself. I grew up as a young woman amongst two brothers believing I could do more than what was expected of us as a woman.

    The Bible itself says very little about the life of Deborah, so as I began reading this book, I wondered how a story could be woven around so few facts. Obviously, the author had to blend fact with a little fiction in order to make an interesting narrative, and she does this very well.I like the way she paints the character of Deborah, not as a flawless saint, but as a very human woman with common struggles. We are faced with the question of whether Deborah ever wanted to become Israel’s prophetess, and whether her God-appointment sat comfortably on her shoulders. Smith gives us one scenario, but we don’t know if this is the truth.I think it is important when reading a book like this to remember that it is a work of fiction, all-be-it an extremely good one. A person reading it to gain more Biblical knowledge might well be miss-led, which is my only concern about the book. However, Jill Eileen Smith inserts a section at the back where she separates fiction from fact, and I think this is very helpful, particularly for a reader with limited Biblical knowledge.I have never read anything by this author before, but am now looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.
