Francine has taken biblical and historic history and woven together 'novellas'. This is by far my favorite book. During my first read I had to set the book down a couple times - upset saying to myself 'THAT's not in the Bible!' - would go grab my bible and my jaw would drop! This book brought new revelation of an old story, helped me to see my own situation in a much different light, highlights God's grace and forgiveness, and is just very thrilling to read!
Francine Rivers writes her fact based stories from the bible, yet makes the story's real and understandable. The Lineage of Grace series is the best ever written about special women in the Bible. It shows how God will use anyone who strives to know Him. You have to get the set. They are a MUST read. You will desire to put the story to your life. It opens the eyes of your heart and you will know that you have a lot to do in changing the way you look at the way you're living your life.
Francine Rivers writes biblically and passionately with keen insights into the hearts and lives of her characters. Tamar is real; she is relevant; through her story, you are drawn into the bigness of God and His purposes.
This is a wonderful book! I am a reading teacher, so I read all the time, so when I say this is a truly remarkable book you know I mean it. It is a very easy read, but is so powerful. It made me want to read the story of Tamar and Judah again. Francine Rivers is a very good writer.
