The Prophetess by Jill Eileen Smith(Deborah’s story)

This was a wonderful example of biblical fiction. Jill Eileen Smith took a small story in the bible and made a person real. She took the story of Deborah and gave her a family and a life. At times I wasn’t sure I really liked Deborah but then she would do something that every wife and mother would do. This flows very well and I did not want to put the book down. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.  Jill Eileen Smith is the bestselling author of “The Crimson Cord,” The Wives of King David series, the Wives of the Patriarchs series, and the ebook novellas “The Desert Princess “and “The Shepherdess.” Her research into the lives of biblical women has taken her from the Bible to Israel, and she particularly enjoys learning how women lived in Old Testament times. Jill lives with her family in southeast Michigan. Learn more at
Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she’ll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonai–and those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan’s armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God’s calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?
