Judah’s Wife

Judah’s Wife
By Angela Hunt
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: 01/2018

Leah grew up in a house filled with fear instead of love—she expected anger from her father at the slightest provocation. Her only escape is going to market and selling cheese. Then she becomes betrothed to Judah Maccabaeus and hopes life with him will be better than with her father.

As Leah learns about Judah and his family, she yearns for the close-knit bond they share. But with war between the Maccabees and the Seleucids breaking out, and Judah leading the charge as Israel’s warrior, Leah’s newfound love for her husband will be put to the test.

This is the second book in the series but doesn’t have to be read in order. Discussion questions are included. Fans of Diana Wallis Taylor will love this book that explores a little-known span of time in history.
