Review: A Passionate Hope: Hannah's Story by Jill Eileen Smith

Blurb (from Amazon): 

Hannah and her husband, Elkanah, share a deep and abiding love, for each other, for their God, and for his tabernacle at Shiloh. Greatly disturbed by the corruption of the priests, they long for restoration and pray for a deliverer. But nothing changes as the years pass. Years that also reveal Hannah to be barren.

Pressured by his family to take another wife, Elkanah marries Peninnah, who quickly begins to bear children. Disgraced and taunted by her husband's new wife, Hannah turns again to prayers that seem doomed to go unanswered. Do her devotion and kindness in the face of Peninnah's cruelty count for nothing? Why does God remain silent and indifferent to her pleas?

Travel back to the dusty streets of Shiloh with an expert guide as Jill Eileen Smith brings to life a beloved story of hope, patience, and deliverance that shows that even the most broken of relationships can be restored.

My Review: 

A Passionate Hope: Hannah’s Story is a beautiful story of hope, faith, and inspiration. I love this fourth installment from the Daughters of the Promised Land series. To be honest, I was not sure about it at first. Then suddenly, I was hooked and loving Hannah more and more. I felt connected to her. I could feel and understand her struggles. It was heartbreaking at times but she never gave up, which is admirable to see her strength.

A Passionate Hope: Hannah’s Story is my newest favorite by Jill Eileen Smith. Her work just keeps getting better and better.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5+ stars.

I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
