Read from August 21 to 26, 2010

The author takes the biblical stories of Jacob/Esau, Rachel/Leah, and weave them into an 18th century romantic historical novel. It is beautifully written about the character's mistakes, sins, love, repentance, heartbreak, forgiveness, treachery, tragedy, grief, faith, hope and joy. I actually read the 2nd and 3rd books before this one because I just picked it off the shelf. I really liked books 2 and 3, and would actually just recommend reading those and skipping 1, just because it contains several intimate moments, however you do get to know the characters better in book 1 and actually see how much they change and grow for the better.
