Summary (from book):

Striking beauty… comes at a price. Rahab paid it when at the age of fifteen she was sold into prostitution by the one man she loved and trusted—her father. With her keen mind and careful planning she turned heartache into success, achieving independence while still young. And she vowed never again to trust a man. Any man. God had other plans. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walked Salmone, a prominent leader of Judah, held in high esteem by all Israel. A man of faith, honor, and pride. An enemy. What is a woman with a wrecked past to do when she wants to be loved, yet no longer believes it possible? The walls of Jericho are only the beginning. The real battle for Rahab will be one of the heart.

 My Thoughts: I thought this book was okay. There wasn’t much special about it and it wasn’t bad either. It reminded me a lot of Mary, Called Magdalene and In the Shadow of the Ark. Those weren’t inspirational books, but more like historical fiction with religion that plays a part. So I really want to know how some books are classified as one genre, but not the other.
Anyways, this book is the last book for my Inspiration Challenge. That’s my first resolution done of 2012 🙂
