BLOG TOUR: The Crimson Cord by Jill Eileen Smith

BLOG TOUR: The Crimson Cord by Jill Eileen Smith

{About the Book}

Wife to a gambler who took one too many risks, Rahab finds herself sold as a slave to cover her husband's debt. Forced into prostitution by Dabir, counselor to the Syrian king, Rahab despairs of ever regaining her freedom and her self-respect. But when Israelite spies enter Jericho and come to lodge at her house, Rahab sees a glimmer of hope and the opportunity of a lifetime. In one risky moment, she takes a leap of faith, puts her trust in a God she does not know, and vows to protect the spies from the authorities. When the armies of Israel arrive weeks later, Rahab hopes they will keep their promise, but she has no idea what kind of challenges await her outside Jericho's walls--or if she will ever know the meaning of love.

Genre: Historical Romance
Rating: 5 stars.

The Crimson Cord was a fantastic retelling of the biblical story of Rahab. Rahab is one of my favourite stories and women from the Bible. Rahab a woman who went from a prostitute to marrying one of the spies she helped get out of Jericho. Rahab's story proves God can use anybody, where ever they are in life for Kingdom's cause. It proves God changes hearts and broken people. The novel itself was wonderful. The writing flowed well and the descriptions were great. The characters were so great, flawed and imperfect people, which the Bible is chock full of. 

If you love Historical Romance or Biblical fiction this would be the novel for you. And I can't wait for the next book in this series and to find out which woman of the Bible Jill has chosen to do next.
