Absolutely fantastic! I am a freshman in college, and I was struggling spiritually at the beginning the of the year, but after I read these books, I was so encouraged to see how God took five women -- all from different situations -- and changed their hearts, and the hearts of the people around them to provide a true lineage of grace from which our Lord and Saviour was born from. I recommend this to ANY woman who wants to read about five excellent spiritual role models!!
This book puts the real life stories of brave and courageous women from the Bible into an interesting, dramatic and enthralling way. The romance in these two books is remarkably intriguing and fun to read!
AMAZING!! Even though this is historical fiction, it is very biblically acurate. This series touched my heart and helped me understand the culture of biblical times. Like a typical Francine Rivers book, you can't put it down!! I was drawn closer to God through this series.
