Sarai - Reviewed

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Book Blurb:
Sarai, the last child of her aged father, is beautiful, spoiled, and used to getting her own way. Even as a young girl, she is aware of the way men look at her, including her half brother Abram. When Abram finally requests Sarai's hand, she asks one thing--that he promise never to take another wife as long as she lives. Even her father thinks the demand is restrictive and agrees to the union only if Sarai makes a promise in return--to give Abram a son and heir. Certain she can easily do that, Sarai agrees.

But as the years stretch on and Sarai's womb remains empty, she becomes desperate to fulfill her end of the bargain--lest Abram decide that he will not fulfill his. To what lengths will Sarai go in her quest to bear a son? And how long will Abram's patience last?

My Thoughts: Sarai is a pain in the rump that is for sure. She's beautiful there is no doubt Abram would want her. Jill brings the world of Canaan, Egypt, together so vividly you can hear the animals, smell the herbs, and feel the frustration that both Abram and Sarai are going through. It does lead me to wonder that if Sarai had not taken things in her own hands would God have blessed them sooner with Isaac. With that said, how many times do we take things in our own hands because we don't think He's working fast enough.
Jill has once again written a home run hit! I can't highly recommend this book enough! It will be on my top for the year!

Sounds like a good book. It's kinda hard for me to read about ancient Egypt, though, in novel form because things were so drastically different back then.
