    Brings the bible to life!

    The two main women characters, Hannah and Peninnah, are so well written that I found myself fighting off feelings of depression as I read this wonderful book. Hannah’s story is covered in just a few verses in the bible. I can breeze through all of her difficulty in just a few seconds, get to her joy, and move on. The author has done a fantastic job of researching biblical times so that she could write a very believable story based on the short section we are given. I was so burdened down with grief for all that Hannah was enduring at times that I simply had to put this book aside to let my own emotions settle down. Yet I also felt compelled by the depth of the story to return very quickly to progress through the book. I desperately wanted to see Hannah reach her time of rejoicing. Jill Eileen Smith has an incredible gift and I’m thrilled that she uses it to bring the stories and characters of the bible to life. I received a free copy of this book from the author. I have chosen to write this review to express my personal opinion.

    Hannah's Story Come To Life

    Have you ever prayed for something, but God doesn't answer? Do your pleas and tears seem to go unheeded and that God is not listening, no matter what you do or how dedicated you are? The Biblical account of Hannah deals with this very thing. Her story is told in A Passionate Hope: Hannah's Story, the latest book in Jill Eileen Smith's Daughters of the Promised Land series. I have always loved this Bible story, but it has finally been brought to life through the pages of the author's well-researched book. Hannah loves Yahweh and wishes with all her heart to please Him in all she says and does. She has known Elkanah her entire life, it seems, and hopes to one day marry him and start a family of their very own. Her wish is granted, for Elkanah loves her, too. He wants nothing more than to spend his life with Hannah, have a large family and serve God together. Their marriage is a happy one, but there is one problem. Hannah is barren and no amount of pleading or bargaining with Yahweh for a baby is working. The pressure is so bad that her beloved husband, Elkanah, takes a second wife in the hope that she will bear him children. The plan works, but no one is happy. Hannah is tormented day and night by Peninnah, the rival for her husband's affection. Hannah bears this burden with much grace, but wonders if she will ever be given the desire of her heart. Little does she know that she is part of Yahweh's plan to redeem His chosen people, Israel. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author and publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not required to leave a positive review.

    Heart-wrenching Struggles Between Hannah and Penin

    What an incredible book! Scriptures leap to life as they are fleshed out with the daily “might-have-beens” in A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith. I’m not sure what I expected, but what I found was a novel rich in Biblical truth; accurate in Israeli history; strong in Jewish tradition. Hannah and Elkanah and other characters are very well drawn. I quickly felt myself part of the turmoil that was Shiloh with her arrogant, deceitful, and lustful priests. My heart twisted with those of Elkanah and Hannah as they consider the trip to the temple with anticipation, fear, and longing. Smith’s protagonists ask the hard questions: where is God when His temple and offerings are being desecrated, the young women ruined and families threatened by the priests? Lots to love here. I greatly appreciate the spiritual foundation that Elkanah and Hannah’s marriage is based upon. I loved the inside look at Peninnah and her marriage to Elkanah. I was certainly struck by the fact that while the situation was less than ideal, one wife chose to honor God and make the best of it, while the other chose to curse and complain. Their happiness did not lie in their circumstance, but in their response to it. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. No positive review is required and all opinions are solely my own.
