Angela Hunt gives us a possible perspective on this infamous woman from the Bible. In this book, we meet Delilah, a woman who's step father has passed. She and her mother are now under the dictatorship of her step-brother.
This is life changing for her. Meanwhile, Sampson, when he wasn't doing acts of great renowned, was an "ordinary" guy with a calling on his life. He longed for what most men do, a wife and kids. Delilah is not from his linage. He is a Nazarite, sworn to serve God and follow some set rules.
She is an exotic, beautiful pagan Egyptian. These opposites are not just attracted, but deadly. Told from both "sides" of the story, this book was well interwoven with scripture and rich in the settings of the time. I enjoyed it.
My copy came from Net Galley and Bethany House in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.
