Teaser Tuesdays: The Triumph of Deborah

Each week TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • Share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
Please avoid spoilers!
My teasers today are from THE TRIUMPH OF DEBORAH by Eva Etzioni-Harevy.

The day that preceded Barak's attack had been a tiring one for Deborah, with numerous complaints shrilly voicing their claims. She had succeeded in appeasing them all, and they had left in contentment. ~ page 109

This is the first Biblical Fiction book I've read and I have to say I'm happily surprised at how much I'm enjoying it. I doubt this will be my last venture into this genre.

Interesting teaser. I cant say I have heard of the term biblical fiction. I guess it is like historical fiction except deals with the bible.

I've never read biblical fiction, but the historical fiction I read is slowly going back in time so maybe I'll get there one day.Good teaser!

Margot said...

Biblical Fiction sounds like a fun way to read the old story but with a lot more characters and a thicker plot. Glad you're enjoying the book.

I've not read biblical fiction. I'm not sure why because I've heard such good things.

Oh, I love biblical fiction, but I haven't read many of them though. This sounds like something I should keep an eye out for!

I'm not too familiar with the story of Deborah...but then, I'm a little rusty when it comes to biblical stories. It's been a while. I shall have to look into this book!

I love the cover and I have read some biblical fiction in the past. I look forward to your final thoughts!!

Very cool, not the kind of book I'd think to pick up, but sounds like a great way to read a Bible story. Like having my kids watch Veggie Tales Bible stories! I might have to check that out!
