The Crimson Cord, by Jill Eileen Smith, is the first in Daughters of the Promised Land series.
Rahab was a prostitute who is listed in the lineage of Jesus Christ. But there is more to her story than that. When Joshua sent spies into Jericho, Rahab provided them with a hiding place. She was a believer of God who could have been killed for her actions and her belief.
With so little known of Rahab, the author did have to take some liberties to provide her back story. However, she did such a great job that the novel is easy to believe. Jill Eileen Smith did stay true to the Bible, but allowed the reader to feel like they now can understand more about the main character.
This well-written book is published by Revell Publishing and I would recommend it to any of my friends and families. I will give it the maximum number of stars on all of the sites where I post this.
I was given this book by the author, NetGalley and Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
