Rachel by Jill Eileen Smith

Hi Friends,

My friend, Jill Eileen Smith, has a new Biblical novel out that I think you'll enjoy.  Here's a bit about it:

A Novel by Jill Eileen Smith

4 ½ Stars from RT Book Reviews

Can true love overcome a legacy of betrayal?

Rachel wants nothing more than for her older half sister Leah to wed and move out of their household. Leah wishes her father would find a good man who would love her alone. Unbeknownst to either of them, Jacob is making his way to their home, trying to escape a past laced with deceit and find the future God has promised him.

But the past comes back to haunt Jacob when he finds himself on the receiving end of treachery. The man who wanted only one woman ends up with sisters who have never gotten along and now must spend the rest of their lives sharing a husband. In the power struggles that follow, only one woman will triumph . . . or will she?
