A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith

35069228

Hannah and her husband, Elkanah, share a deep and abiding love, for each other, for their God, and for his tabernacle at Shiloh. Greatly disturbed by the corruption of the priests, they long for restoration and pray for a deliverer. But nothing changes as the years pass. Years that also reveal Hannah to be barren.

Pressured by his family to take another wife, Elkanah marries Peninnah, who quickly begins to bear children. Disgraced and taunted by her husband’s new wife, Hannah turns again to prayers that seem doomed to go unanswered. Do her devotion and kindness in the face of Peninnah’s cruelty count for nothing? Why does God remain silent and indifferent to her pleas?

Travel back to the dusty streets of Shiloh with an expert guide as Jill Eileen Smith brings to life a beloved story of hope, patience, and deliverance that shows that even the most broken of relationships can be restored.

December & 2017 Reading Round-Up

Hi there! Long time no see! *nervous gulp*

Well, y’all are gonna thank me for my (unannounced) hiatus in the long run. Because it gave me time to think.*

And … I decided that I needed to take Reveries Reviews in a new direction. (Sort of.) From now on, I’ll be doing monthly reading wrap-up posts (like this one). And every year I’ll do a yearly reading wrap-up post (like this one) as well.

I’m always going to try to post twice a week regularly and balance my reviews with posts of other sorts. Though *coughs* you’ve heard that before.

*not that I’m not always thinking … just that this time I thought even more than usual. #superthinker

Well. Let’s jump into the post!
