I received a copy of WHEN LIFE DOESN’T MATCH YOUR DREAMS: HOPE FOR TODAY FROM 12 WOMEN OF THE BIBLE by Jill Eileen Smith from Revell in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book, in particular the women that it touched upon. Over the last few years, my mother and I have been studying women of the Bible, so it was great to see these women talked about.
Each part starts with “If I were…” You jump right into the woman’s head. I LOVED it. What a great storytelling tool. These openings really put you into her mind. You feel what she felt. You see what she saw. Excellent writing.
This read more like historical fiction, another aspect I loved. It was easy to get through and the parts are short. They’re perfect for reading on your lunch break or right before bed. This book comes highly recommended!
