The Bible is filled with women of faith, bravery, and cunning. Here is one woman's tale—as it might have happened . . . "Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, Blessed shall she be above women in the tent." Judges 5:24" Like many a bride-to-be, Jael looks forward to a long, loving marriage. But when her husband, Heber, takes her home to live in the company of his other wife and concubine, Jael's dreams begin to crumble. The women in her tent warn Jael that, to bear Heber the sons he demands, she will have to risk shame, betrayal of her vows, even possible execution. But in the darkest moment of her life, there sparks a flame: a young warrior named Levi enters her life—and Jael is presented with a life-changing decision, one that will affect the fate of all the people of Israel. Now there's no turning back on the path that will lead her to change history—by doing the unthinkable. "Terrific biblical biographical fiction, the genesis of a new series."—Midwest Book Review
