Teaser Tuesday: The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy

TEASER TUESDAYS : Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~ I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:
And so it was. After having obtained her father's consent on both counts, Lapidoth came back with his men, all bearing arms, each day at sunset, in readiness for what the night might bring.

~ p. 112, “The Triumph of Deborah" by Eva Etzioni-Halevy




From Amazon:
The richly imagined tale of Deborah, the courageous Biblical warrior who saved her people from certain destruction

In ancient Israel, war is looming. Deborah, a highly respected leader, has coerced the warrior Barak into launching a strike against the neighboring Canaanites. Against all odds he succeeds, returning triumphantly with Asherah and Nogah, daughters of the Canaanite King, as his prisoners. But military victory is only the beginning of the turmoil, as a complex love triangle develops between Barak and the two princesses.

Deborah, recently cast off by her husband, develops a surprising affinity for Barak. Yet she struggles to rebuild her existence on her own terms, while also groping her way toward the greatest triumph of her life.

Filled with brilliantly vivid historical detail, The Triumph of Deborah is the absorbing and riveting tale of one of the most beloved figures in the Old Testament, and a tribute to feminine strength and independence.

I hope you're enjoying the book. I thought it was entertaining, and a fun read but not my all time favorite Bible based fiction or anything.

What an interesting teaser and an interesting book summary. I would not have guessed that the book was about what it is without the summary as the teaser leads me in a totally different direction.

I must be going crazy I thought I had responded to this. Clearly not.

Sounds like a great historical fiction novel.

I do not know if Moon Called is like the Kitty series as I have yet to actually read a Kitty book. When I do I will let you know if they are similar!
