Smith is passionate about bringing to life the women of the Old Testament. Her new series starts with the wife of Abram and authentically renders their marriage struggles and their way of life into a saga that readers will embrace.
Sarai wishes only to bear an heir for the man she loves, Abram. Sarai does not commit fully to God and is persuaded by Lot’s wife to worship idols. As the years stretch on, her womb remains empty. To what lengths will she go to have a baby? (REVELL, Mar., 320 pp., $14.99)
