Judah's Wife (The Silent Years Book #2)
Judah's Wife (The Silent Years Book #2): A Novel of the Maccabees | Angela Hunt
3 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
Seeking peace and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gentle man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she can rest easily. But the land is ruled by Antiochus IV, descended from one of Alexander the Great's generals, and when he issues a decree that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws upon pain of death, devout Jews risk everything to follow the law of Moses. Judah's father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands his son to pick up his sword and continue the fight--or bear responsibility for the obliteration of the land of Judah. 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 learns that love requires courage . . . and sacrifice.

I am absolutely loving this series!!! The series delves into the 400 years between the Old Testament and the New Testament. The author refers to this time as The Silent Years. Eye opening.

This is the 2nd book in The Silent Years series. So far I'm really enjoying this series.

This book comes to a melancholy end. If you‘re looking for a book that has a happy ending then this book is not the one for you. However, if you‘re looking for a book that features a broken woman who learns to put her trust in God then I would definitely suggest this book.
