Unveiled: Tamar 1 (Lineage of Grace) by Francine Rivers

unveiledSynopsis:

Unveiled is the story of Tamar, one of the women in the lineage of Jesus. Francine brings the story to life in her trademark style, showing the grace of God in the life of Tamar and her father-in-law, Judah. Unveiled is the first in the Lineage of Grace series of five novellas covering the stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary.

Review:  (Reviewed by Venture Cecena for I Feel the Need, the Need to Read)

The Bible comes alive in this fiction story based on the scriptures about Tamar.  For those who don’t know or don’t remember, Tamar was the daughter-in-law of Judah.  Judah and his brothers sold their brother Joseph into slavery. Then they told their father he had been killed.  The book is from Tamar’s point of view.  She is a Canaanite girl raised believing in Gods made out of pottery.  She is curious in this household that she finds herself.  The story shows the struggle and the strength of character she has.  Her faith in her new family that treats her horribly.  Francine Rivers brings the Bible alive in away that you believe this is how it was for Tamar.  Tamar is living in a world that a woman’s worth is judged by how many sons she has.  It makes me truly appreciate the life that we live now; the freedoms that we take for granted.  If you want a fictional story based on scripture then this is the book for you.  If I have even an eighth of the character that Tamar shows at 14, then I will be content.
