Francine Rivers does a very good job of taking the Biblical story of Tamar from Genesis and fleshing it out. The author is able to make the characters seem real without resorting to making them sound like they are from our own times. The story and the characters reflect the culture and beliefs of that time. Tamar is a young girl and a Canaanite, intrigued by and drawn to the God of her father-in-law, Judah, who is an Israelite. Tamar undergoes years of physical and/or mental abuse, both at the hands of her own family as well as by her husband and his family. However, she remains determined to fulfill what she believes is her destiny, and which in the end places her among the women in the linage of Christ. This is the first in the "Linage of Christ" series by this author.
