Amazingly done and based on KJV Bible verses.
Lois T. Henderson did an amazing job researching and filling out:
* what life as a slave must have been like
* how life was lived at the camp
* what those involved in Hagar's story thought of various situations
AND so much more!
I had read Lois T. Henderson's books before and I am disappointed the she was never able to write about more Women of the Bible - she had an excellent way of filling in so much that may have been said between the main characters, without straying from Biblical and Historical references.
My wife read these books and greatly enjoyed all of them. After reading them from the church library, we ordered a copy to give as Christmas presents. They take little snippets about the character from the Bible and expand on them into a fictional novel. The greatest praise my wife gave was that it made her feel like she could relate to the character. Lois Henderson does a great job of putting the character and the situations into perspective.
This was a gift as I have bought it for myself and love it! Great to see another side of the story of Hagar and Sarah...God was good to Hagar even though Sarah wasn't...I would highly recommend it and suggest getting all of Lois T. Henderson books on women in the bible!
I truly was amazed by Ms. Henderson's ability to take incidents and people from the bible and draw the reader into feeling and visualizing their daily lives. It helped me bring the bible into my life. Once I completed reading this book, I mailed to a relative of mine who I knew would enjoy this Christian book.
I truly enjoyed this read and look forward to my next book by Jill Smith.
