This story definitely relies more on miracles than the last two. Hadassah converted people based on the strength of her faith and her undying belief. On the other hand, Rizpah has a fiery temper that she struggles to control. When Atretes is converted, it's through the witnessing of a miracle, which is the same way a few of his people were converted. While it's possible to convert either way, I feel that true conversion occurs when you admire a person like Hadassah- who loves without conditions, and has the patience of a saint. Rizpah, though, is so much easier to relate to, while Hadassah seems more ethereally perfect. Yet, funnily enough, it's the beauty inside that Hadassah bears, while Rizpah, the more troubled one, is outwardly beautiful. As it goes, "Beauty is only skin deep."
