Revell Blog Tour: Rachel

Author: Jill Eileen Smith

Genre: Life, romance

Series: Wives of the Patriarchs

Number in series: 3rd

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9

Type: Historical fiction

Number of pages: 314

Time period: Bible times

My overall opinion: After finishing Jill’s books, I am always amazed by her attention to detail. In addition to that, I always feel like I really have gained a great insight into whichever characters were featured. This book was no exception! I found myself completely empathizing with Rachel and the anger she harbored, and with Leah and the desperation and pain that pierced her. I definitely felt a connection with each of them, and with Jacob. It takes skill to establish such a connection, but Jill has it down to a science! As is usual with Jill’s books, this one was Biblically accurate and even had direct quotes for some of it. It kept me reading (and up too late). I highly recommend it to all Biblical and historical fiction fans!
