Lose yourself in a moving story of a young girl's journey to womanhood and redemption in "Rebekah Redeemed" by Dianne Sagan.

At the age of six, Rebekah is orphaned and sent to live with relatives. But she is treated as a servant girl; passed along from home to home, her true identity kept secret by others who mistreat and abuse her. Surely, the God her father spoke of and prayed to does not exist.

Now a young woman, she is sent to be another relative's house servant, her identity kept hidden by

Rebekah, a six year old shepherd's daughter is left orphaned.

Review written by: Karen Cioffi, co-author of Day’s End Lullaby.

Dianne Sagan wrote a beautiful book about a young girl’s tribulations and triumph. The daughter of a shepherd, Rebekah lost both her parents at six-years-old and was sent to her mother’s brother. At first he wanted no part of her, but his wife decided they would keep her, not as family, but as a servant slave. In her years of servitude and finally redempti

Rebekah finds her self in a place she never imagined. Her father was killed by a lion when he was protection the sheep. One of the other shepherds takes her to her only known relative. Her parents weren't in touch with her mother's family because she chose to marry her father. Her uncle Benjamin took her in but a servant and her Aunt Mara would beat her and treat her like garbage. She was sold to Jacob after Benjamin was killed. Jacob was also her Uncle. His wife sent her away to live with her s ...more

I highly recommend this novel of biblical history brought to life. The descriptions of the people and their lives tell Rebekah's story with a sweet perspective so that we can understand her trials, hopes and aspirations. Jesus comes alive in our feelings and soul as we travel in Rebekah's world of slavery toward freedom where finally she can experience true joy and peace. This book is a perfect read for middle and adult readers interested in biblical times and Jesus. It is well researched and le ...more

While I did enjoy the book, the description seems to be flawed because it states that Rebekah saw the Christ child that first night, while it was her father who had seen the christ child that first night, years before she was born... Still, I did enjoy the book and liked how it ended.

A Kindle freebie about a girl who lived when Jesus was alive on earth. A simple, short novel with nothing particularly wonderful, but it wasn't a bad read either.
Margaret
Nice little biblical story. Nothing really original, but well written and a quick pleasant read.
Judy
It was a free easy read book. Not much depth.
