Description

Life is full of twists and turns. Relationships falter, careers fizzle, health fades. We may be faced with choices we never wanted to make or have situations pushed upon us we'd never expected. Yet, in all of it, God is at our side--even when he feels far away. Drawing on her extensive research into women of the Old Testament, novelist Jill Eileen Smith turns her pen to the lessons in trusting God that we can learn today from women like

- Eve
- Noah's wife
- Sarai
- Hagar
- Lot's wife
- Rebekah
- Rachel
- and more

Readers will learn from what these ancient women did right--and even what they did wrong--when faced with dashed expectations and deferred dreams. And they'll come away with the confidence that ours is a faithful God who loves us and is forming us through our trials into the women he longs for us to be.

"The women of Genesis are fascinating, yet the narratives are terse. Jill Eileen Smith imagines what may have happened between the lines, and it causes us to ponder. How did the fall affect Adam and Eve's marriage? Why did Lot's wife look back? You'll be both educated and entertained."--Dee Brestin, author of The Friendships of Women and He Calls You Beautiful "Steady and strong. Relatable and real. . . . This book has incredible heart--a drumbeat of God's enduring love for those we call mothers and daughters, sisters and friends."--Kristy Cambron, bestselling author of the Hidden Masterpiece novels and the Verse Mapping Bible studies Jill Eileen Smith is the bestselling and award-winning author of the biblical fiction series The Wives of King David, Wives of the Patriarchs, The Loves of King Solomon, and Daughters of the Promised Land.
