Can love heal the rift between two souls?
When her beloved father dies and she is left in the care of her conniving brother Laban, Rebekah knows her life has changed forever. Though she should be married by now, it's clear that Laban is dragging his feet, waiting for a higher bride-price to line his pockets. But then Rebekah is given a chance to leave her home to marry Isaac, a cousin she has never even seen, and her hope for the future is restored. Little does she know what a wondrous and heart-wrenching journey she is beginning.
As Rebekah experiences the joy of young love and the bitterness of misunderstanding and betrayal, her resolve is tested. When the rift between Isaac and her grows so wide it is surely too great to be mended, can she trust the God of Isaac's father Abraham to bridge the gap?

MY REVIEW-Today I have a review for another excellent book by Jill Eileen Smith. Rebekah is such a well written story I totally fell in love with it. Those of you hoping to get more of a feel and an intimate look into the life of Rebekah and Isaac will be overjoyed to read this novel. Kind of gives you a new look at the biblical characters. I am not sure I agree with her portrayal of Laban, but other than that I really enjoyed this book. Her research into that time period really comes into play here and I felt like I was back in Bible times. Excellent book!!
