Tamara Adams gives a tone of authenticity to the stories of 12 remarkable biblical women. In Adams's voice one can hear Ruth's steadfast commitment to the needs of her mother-in-law after Naomi's husband's untimely death. Adams creates a tone of understanding as Martha and Mary, sisters of Lazarus, learn to practice love of God by choice instead of circumstance. When Jesus reaches out and requests a drink of water from the Samaritan woman despised by the Jews for her mixed race, listeners can her the love and compassion he offers her in Adams's voice. Overall, Adams uses subtle, suggestive accents and a versatile range to deliver polished, believable stories about women with traits of integrity, hospitality, and virtue.
