Leah was so young when her sister Rachel was born that she could not remember a time when Rachel was not the darling of the family- pretty, clever, and cute, whereas Leah plugged along being obedient, hard-working, and responsible. Then one day a good-looking marriageable kinsman named Jacob showed up, looking for a haven from his brother's rage, and Leah fell in love at once. It didn't surprise her at all that Jacob saw only Rachel. But surely, as the two sisters worked and lived alongside Jacob for seven years, he would come to realize that Leah was the one he ought to marry...

Review:

Praise for Sarah

"This series is definitely for those interested in women in the Bible, and in such novels as The Red Tent (by NYT bestseller Anita Diamant)." ―Kliatt

“The story moves swiftly, climaxing at several points, such as Abram and Sarai’s stay in Egypt when the pharaoh wants to take Sarai as his wife. It is a quick and interesting read....This is an intriguing story .”―Pittsburg Post-Gazette

“This playfully speculative novel succeeds in bringing Sarah's soft-overlooked character into vivid relief.”―Publishers Weekly

“This is an inventive and engaging telling of the life of Sarah, the woman who laughed at God’s news (that so old a woman wouldnow bear a child)―and who gives as good as she gets throughout both the book of Genesis and Card’s novel.” ―Historical Novel Society
