Tessa is an excellent writer! Her character development draws you in and holds you throughout the book & leaves you wanting more. This story of Rahab is my favorite!! I have recommended it to all my reading friends
I started this book with wondering. . . if I could really enjoy a novel about Rahab, if the author would do any disservice to Scripture, if I would be disappointed. It was fantastic and gave new insights to the Biblical account, fleshing out the humanity of Rahab and her family. I've recommended it to all my friends and family.
I enjoyed this read. I usually shy away from depictions of the Bible but I found this one to be a good read. I felt it stayed accurate to the story while still creating realistic, human (likeable but still flawed) characters. Wove a story that told a plausible explanation to fill in the background not explained in depth in the Bible story. I enjoyed the characters and the writing style.
I had this book on my CBDReader for several months. The same day I stared reading the book of Joshua, I started reading Pearl In The Sand as well. It can only be God's timing!!! Greatly enjoyed a glimpse of what may have transpired with Rahab from being rescued from the tumbling walls of Jerico & taken to live with the Hebrews till mentioned in the book of Matthew that she was a part of the lineage of our Lord Jesus!!! Definitely worth the time to read!!!
