Hannah: Mother of a Prophet by H. B. Moore // Review

My Review: 

A beautiful fictionalization of Hannah's story, and later Samuel's rise to High Priest of Israel. 

Engaging and heartfelt re-telling of Hannah, mother of Samuel. Beautifully telling of her heartache and great faith, I admired Hannah so much for how she bore Peninnah's cruelty while her own heart was aching so. The author does a great job of capturing the longing and heartbreak in Hannah's life. 

Only the first quarter of this book tells Hannah's story though, and I was happily surprised to read about Samuel and his struggles in the house of Eli, as well as the story of a beautiful young woman tainted by her father's sin. 

Overall, a compelling and rich read that brought one of my favorite Biblical heroes to life in an even more heartfelt way. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
