The Prophetess by Jill Eileen Smith

Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she'll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonai--and those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan's armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God's calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?

With her trademark impeccable research and her imaginative storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the story of Israel's most powerful woman in a novel that is both intriguing and inspiring.

Here's what I thought.....
This is a very Interesting book. I really enjoyed the writing and all of the different characters. This book is Biblical Fiction so I knew it was going to be enlightening and interesting, but I had trouble staying into it at times. I'm not sure why it was hard for me to get into. It could have been my reading mood or that I wasn't able to concentrate. I sincerely enjoyed the book but I never really had that aha moment, were I fell in love with it.
If Biblical fiction is your thing then I think you will like it. It really made me think hard about the struggles the Isrealites went through while Sisera was terrorizing their land. The author does well in making Deborah seem like a real person and not a fictional character. I have always enjoyed Biblical fiction because it has a way of making the Scriptures come to life. I am very interested to read other books by the author.
Overall this book was very interesting and I would recommend it to those who enjoy Biblical fiction.
Thank you to Revell for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.
