Kandi Wyatt has taken historical fiction and elevated it to a higher level. Her world building pulls you in and puts you right in the middle of the adventure. This is why I love her books. I immediately recogized the story line in her newest book. It is the story of Hagar and her son Ishmael. However, she has taken the information from the Bible and told Hagars story from her perspective. She also removed it from the Biblical time period and set it in medieval times. For me this works so well. We find Faru (Hagar) traded from her mistress to a young Lord. When his wife is finally returned to him, they keep her. Things go along well for years with Faru attending to Lady Cwen's needs. She even finds herself falling in love with a young man named Cailean. But all of this is to change because The Existing One has told him he will have a son.
I will say nothing further because to do so will spoil such a wonderful story. However, if you are familiar with the story you know what will happen. The story is full of hope, love, betrayal and the hardship of living the life of a servant in medieval times. It is also full of hope and trust in "The Existing One". As a Christian it is a reminder to all who follow him that we must always place our trust in God and understand that even through hardships he knows what is best for us. I will definitely recommend this book to others and because it is such a clean read and one that will appeal to teens and adult, will proudly put a copy on my shelves at school. I can't wait to see what this author comes up with next.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

This book, although fictional in nature, can be found in Genesis 12-21, & 25.
I keep debating over what to give this book, but I think I'm going with a 4.5.
1: The story was really great, and I was super excited to recognize certain characters based on what I know about Genesis. It was such a neat idea to take this story and change it into something like this! I mean there were a few liberties, but it's not meant to be you know like a devotional book or anything. It's fiction.
2: I found it really interesting to see this story through Faru's eyes. When reading the biblical story, I have never really stopped to see it from this point of view.
3: So the only reason I was debating between 5 and 4.5 stars was a few places, there wasn't anything said but it was a little implied and I know it's like the whole part of the story, but I was still a little 😕... So I would recommend that this be a book for at least the higher end of the MG lit grade/age level spectrum. And I know that's probably a bit of a silly reason to whatever, but..
4: I loved the way Istik and Cegrol were together. I loved how the love between them was highlighted so well and the pain that Cwen caused them was shown so well.
5: Really, though, the title is so perfect. The One Who Sees ME, even a servant, and nobody special on this earth, He always sees and cares and I loved that.
