“Providence: Hannah’s Journey”~ Harbourlight Books~ October 2016
As the sole daughter of the chief priest, Hannah is publicly shamed when the prophet of Israel refuses to heal her. Determined to restore her family's honor, she escapes Jerusalem in hopes of finding the prophet and convincing him to restore her deformities. Gilead, a young Hebrew guard sympathetic to her plight, willingly accompanies her. On their way, they are captured by a band of raiders and Hannah is forced to serve in the household of the commander of the Aramean army, an officer who is in need of healing himself. Meanwhile, Gilead is being used as sword practice for the Aramean soldiers. Hannah must act fast to save Gilead and herself, but survival will mean coaxing the prophet of Israel to heal an enemy commander.
Sample review from an Amazon reader, supplied by the author:
As an avid reader of fictional novels and daily bible reading I love this idea of bringing bible stories to life! Sometimes reading through the bible I wonder about lives and "the rest of the story". Barbara brings the story of in 2 Kings to life using a beautiful romance, faith and love. Both the heroin and her true love have the faith to believe all things are possible! It speaks truth to the fact that healing was a reality and is still a reality today for those who have the faith to believe. Sometimes we don't get what we want in our time but as this story reveals God always has perfect timing and there are reasons why sometimes he makes us wait as he made Hannah wait. I always love a story with a good ending too and I was extremely surprised but I wont be the spoiler. This book is what I will call a Biblical Harlequin romance! I am looking forward to her next book. Thank you Barbara Britton!
