Publisher's Description

Seeking peace and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gentle man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she can rest easily. But the land is ruled by Antiochus IV, descended from one of Alexander the Great's generals, and when he issues a decree that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws upon pain of death, devout Jews risk everything to follow the law of Moses.

Judah's father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands his son to pick up his sword and continue the fight--or bear responsibility for the obliteration of the land of Judah. Leah, who wants nothing but peace, struggles with her husband's decision--what kind of God would destroy the peace she has sought for so long? 

The miraculous story of the courageous Maccabees is told through the eyes of Judah's wife, who learns that love requires courage . . . and sacrifice.

    Books like "Judah's Wife" always catch my attention. I like reading stories that make the past come alive and Angela Hunt did a great job creating a storyline around an unfamiliar part of Bible-time history. I had heard the name Maccabees, but with the help of this great book, the history now will be memorable!

    It was easy to get swept into the story of Leah and Judah as they grow a relationship amidst the span between the Old and New Testament. Personal interactions and complete environmental details made everything easy to see in my mind and I would suggest "Judah's Wife" to anyone who enjoys a historical fiction!

    I received a copy of "Judah's Wife" from Bethany Publishing House and I am happy to share my own opinions.

    Again Angela Hunt takes a person from the Bible and makes them real. I did not want to put this book down. I needed to know how these people might have lived there lives for God. Leah finally gets away from her abusive father and then marries a man who has to fight to get freedom for his people. This would be hard to handle for anyone. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    I had just finished another novel written by Angela Hunt when I came across this one. Ms. Hunt is a wonderful find, and she shines in "Judah's Wife." Her characters are fully fleshed out, their dialogue is believable, their actions related to the uprising are heady. Yet, since Ms. Hunt stays close to the real history of the Maccabeean uprising, there is also loss...however, loss is not an overarching theme: bravery and determination is. The story is told from two points of view: that of Judah who is, by nature, a gentle man, and that of his wife, Leah who had been badly traumatized as a child forced to deal with her father's extreme domestic violence towards her mother . Their differing views add a sense of understanding of what might have happened between a mighty warrior called by HaShem, and his wife who initially only wanted to live in peace. A good read, but not one I could plow through which is what I usually do. This novel is a great introduction to the era of the Maccabeean Revolt in the Intertestamental time.

    I was on facebooks Avid Readers of Christian Fiction blog and saw so many wonderful comments on this book that I had to buy it. I called my local bookstore and had them order it. I absolutely loved this book and Angela Hunt immediately went on my "favorite authors" list. Judah's Wife is set in the Old Testament era. The hard times of the Jews being ruled by a cruel king cause any peace to errupt into war. All Leah wanted was to marry a peaceful man and have a quiet life as a wife and mother. Her husband Judah is soon a leader in the fight for religious freedom when the Jews are ordered to follow the Syrian laws or die.

    I read this book in less than two days and had a hard time putting this down. I bought the book and no one asked me to leave a review. All opinions are my own and the author nor the publisher knew I would be leaving a review. The cover caught my attention and then I read the comments and I loved this book. Will definitely be reading a lot more of Angela Elwell Hunts book. They are terrific and page turners.

    Judah's Wife was one of the most different novels that I've read. It wasn't the easiest book to read, and it took me quite awhile. I found myself reading a few pages, most of the chapters are pretty short, and then having to take some time to digest what I'd just read.

    In some ways it seemed more like reading a history book. But, oh, what a history! Epic battles, divine miracles, and a family that must make terrible sacrifices during one of the most momentous times in Jewish history!

    I never really connected with Leah or Judah but I found their struggles to be one of the most interesting parts of the story. They are just ordinary people but it is the ordinary people that God so often calls to do extraordinary things and to give of themselves in ways that the modern American reader can scarcely imagine.

    In Judah's Wife author Angela Hunt brings to life the lost years between the Old and New Testaments, a time that was harsh and unyielding, and is oft neglected in Christian fiction. She weaves a poignant story of love, loss, and sacrifice that will stay with the reader after that last page is turned.

    (I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)
