Product Description

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.

    This book is an excellent way to spend a rainy day on the couch with a cup of tea. Takes you to that time and makes you wish you had known them in person.

    Jill Eileen Smith writes amazing Biblical fiction. She does such a great job filling in the unknowns of some of the greatest Bible characters and developing a realistic, well-studied book about their lives. I enjoy every book she has written and was excited to read more about the life of Rebekah!

    Once again, this Biblical fiction is beautifully written and full of deep characters. The book adds in historical detail to the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The book gives us glimpses of what their homes, towns, lives would have been like and gives us, the reader, an opportunity to step into the pages of the Bible.

    The story of Rebekah is well-told but this book adds new elements and new circumstances that give you a new desire to study her story!

    Make sure you read all of Jill's Biblical fiction and be sure to read her newest, Rebekah!

    I have read all of Jill Eileen Smith's books that are available, and I can't wait to read more of them! She is a wonderful Biblical fiction author. She definitely brings the Bible alive.

    Under author's notes she writes that she had a hard time with this storyline, since there isn't much detail Rebekah and Isaac in the Bible. But you'd never know it. The book was fascinating, and I especially enjoyed the focus on feelings and relationships. Of course those details are speculative (as opposed to Biblical fact), but they were very plausible and certainly helped me retain their story...not to mention give me insight that very-well-could-have-dbeen into these mysterious characters!

    The mother-son relationship is special and unique (as is the mother-daughter relationship in different ways). I found it extremely interesting to read details about that. And I just have to add, I was stinkin' frustrated with Isaac!! The ending was good though.

    It would've been nice to have a clearer indication of the passage of time at certain points, but that is very minor.

    **Revell supplied me with this book in exchange for my honest review. I was NOT required to post a positive review, NOR was I paid in any way other than the book.**

    "Rebekah" is a wonderful addition to the "Wives of the Patriarchs" series, a book written with rich detail and heart-stirring emotion. I love the way that Jill Eileen Smith has brought Rebekah and Isaac to life, staying faithful to the Biblical account and yet forming them into characters with depth and uniqueness. These characters and their stories in the Bible have always fascinated me, and looking through their eyes as portrayed in this story has given me even more to think about. Never before have I considered that in the cultural context of the day, it would have been very difficult for Isaac to accept that God spoke to and through Rebekah and that he would be asked to trust a vision a woman had been given from the Lord. The author has succeeded in unfolding the story in a natural manner that would help explain why Rebekah played the role she did in helping Jacob deceive Isaac into giving Jacob the blessing instead of Esau.

    Despite being very familiar with this story, I can say that this book is filled with compelling drama, and it held my interest from the first page to the stirring conclusion. As with the first book in the series, "Sarai", the author has put her skilled pen to good use, resulting in a book that is a pleasure to read. I strongly recommend this book, especially to readers who enjoy excellent Biblical fiction, and I award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    Rebekah is the second book in the Wife's of the Patriarch's series and it explores the turbulent relationship between Issac and his wife Rebekah.

    The story picks up after Sarah's death when both Abraham and Issac are still emotionally vulnerable. Abraham finally decides to seek a wife for his son from among his relatives in the city of Hebron.

    I truly enjoyed the way that the author brings the very human element of emotion to the characters. The fact that Sarah never could truly forgive Abraham for almost sacrificing her son and how that effected Issac and his relationship with both his father and his wife. Also how after the twin were born, how both Issac and Rebekah each had a favorite and how that effected not only their relationship, but the brothers relationship toward's each other. I thought the author did a marvelous job of making the point that more times than not, the choices we make will effect more people that we would think.

    We are also introduced to Rebekah's brother Laban, and we get a taste of his character because I know we will see him in the next book.

    The only little criticism I might have was that I wish the author could have been a little bit more detailed in the day to day activities of the time. I think that would have added to the story, but as the books stands, the author has written a highly creative account of how these people lives could have been. It was both entertaining and enjoyable.
