Judah's Wife - Angela Hunt

SKU: Fiction
Excl. tax

To be silent would be to deny their God. To defy would bring the wrath of the king.

Seeking quiet and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gently man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she'll have peace. But the very nation Judah was named for has been conquered by a cruel king, who decrees that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws or risk death for following the laws of Moses.

Judah's father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands Judah to pick up his sword and continue the fight--or bear responsibility for the obliteration of Israel. Leah, who wants nothing but peace, struggles with her husband's decision--what kind of God would destroy the peace she has sought for so long?

The miraculous story of the courageous Maccabees is told through the eyes of Judah's wife, who learn that love requires courage...and sacrifice.
