I would have liked to see the two main characters spend more time with each other...a bit more interaction between them to see the relationship blossom even more over time. Instead Hannah and Jacob were separated by circumstances due to Levi's treachery, separated possibly a bit longer than they should have been, nevertheless the story was strong and the research into the times of the Judges was evident. This story was very well done.
This is also a sequel of sorts to Temper the Wind, which was a fascinating love story and not to be missed, many readers will be pleased to have an opportunity to visit with Taleh and Javen again.
Joshua decides to stay away from Levi and Hannah so they won't know how he feels. He does visit the farm to help Levi when asked but otherwise he has no interaction with Hannah. When Levi drowns after six years of marriage Hannah's prayers are answered. Because she is barren Levi has abused Hannah and she is afraid that one day he will kill her. But Hannah has forgotten the law, if a man dies and has no issue, his brother must marry his wife and their child will become his brothers. Hannah is terrified, will Joshua abuse her as Levi has done? They will never have children because she is barren and if he doesn't want to marry her what should she do.
Joshua knows the law and he cannot believe that God would give him his hearts desire, surely he cannot be rewarded after he has coveted his brothers wife.
Another wonderful touching read from Mary Ellen Boyd. I have really enjoyed this series. This is a topic that has to handled carefully. This book was very well done.
First, there were no coins yet in the 12th century BC, as they weren't invented until the 7th century. Second, I am a spinner and a weaver, and I can assure you there is no way any number of women could have woven a piece of cloth large enough to contain a two-person pallet on one loom in one day (although I have helped weave a shawl in one day, in a sheep-to-shawl contest at a county fair). Also, archaeology has shown that the classic Hebrew house at this time was the iconic 4-room house,which was generally built of adobe bricks and usually had beaten earth floor. Stone floors or walls would have been only for the very rich. The slave huts would also have been adobe, as wood was scarce, and the back walls of all the houses would have been joined in a defensive circle, as was the case in family settlements in this era.
The characters, however, are very well drawn and 3 dimensional.
