About this author

Jill Eileen Smith is the author of the Wives of the Patriarchs series featuring Sarai, Rebekah, and upcoming Rachel, (Releases 2-1-14) as well as, the bestselling author of Michal, Abigail, and Bathsheba, all part of The Wives of King David series published by Revell (Baker Publishing Group.)

Her writing has taken her from the Bible to Israel and she loves learning how women lived in Old Testament times.

She lives with her family in southeast Michigan.

I'm still rewriting this book, so I haven't read the finished product yet. Exploring the emotion in Rahab's story has been difficult to do at times, but she has also taught me a lot.

This was also a fun book to write. It was a change to 1st person for me, but the voice of the story demanded it. It should release to e-book 8-1-14. I hope you enjoy it!

“We don't always know why God allows trials. We do know He wants us to trust Him.”
Jill Eileen Smith, Michal

“What a failure her life had been. Would she have lied to God if she’d had more faith, been more righteous? How could she possibly have a son at her age? And yet, if she had believed all along . . .”
Jill Eileen Smith, Sarai
