In the historical fiction novel The Prophetess: Deborah’s Story, Jill Eileen Smith tells the story of the prophet Deborah. Smith uses vivid description to craft her tale, and the dialogue has a good flow. You can tell that Smith has done a lot of historical research to write this book. Deborah’s character is multi-faceted and realistic. She is thoughtful and empathic, and we see her role both as a prophetess and mother to her daughter Talya. This book is the second in the Daughters of the Promised Land series; I adored the first book in the series, The Crimson Cord: Rahab’s Story, and the story of Deborah did not disappoint.
