Goodreads synopsis:

“Can true love overcome a legacy of betrayal?

Rachel wants nothing more than for her older half sister Leah to wed and move out of their household. Leah wishes her father would find a good man who would love her alone. Unbeknownst to either of them, Jacob is making his way to their home, trying to escape a past laced with deceit and find the future God has promised him.

But the past comes back to haunt Jacob when he finds himself on the receiving end of treachery. The man who wanted only one woman ends up with sisters who have never gotten along and now must spend the rest of their lives sharing a husband. In the power struggles that follow, only one woman will triumph . . . or will she?

Combining meticulous research with her own imaginings, bestselling author Jill Eileen Smith not only tells one of the most famous love stories of all time but will manage to surprise even those who think they know the story inside and out.”

My Review:

I love to read books about characters in the Bible. The story of Rachel, Leah and Jacob is probably one of my most favorite stories from the Bible. Jacob would do anything to be with the love of his life and to make her happy although Rachel’s father does everything to go against that. Jill Eileen Smith did a great job of portraying the story of Rachel. It is always neat to hear someone’s view of the story. There were a few things that I didn’t think would happen, but overall the story was great. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Revell Reads.
