Jael's husband was a blacksmith and the family lived in a large tent and moved with the army in order to be available to fix swords, chariot wheels and armor. She was married to Heber who was a blacksmith. Like most brides, Jael hopes for a loving marriage. I was glad we got to meet Deborah again, as well. Although there are other interesting women whom we sadly don't hear as much about due to being overshadowed by the men. Its easy to see why Levi loved her.

The author has created a story that could have taken place at that time an included a lot of historical detail to give a sense of what life might have been like for Jael. They work just fine as stand alone novels and I recommend these to anyone who loves a clean romance or historical romance.

But then this was Jael's story and I could see why she wouldn't care and since she never went back why she wouldn't know. It is about a very obscure character in the bible who outwits her husband to make sure Levi gets his sword. Her family believed that he would provide for her and treat her well because of his wealth and social standing. I enjoyed this short book quite a bit, it was an interesting tale of a Israelite spoils-of-war concubine who converted Jael to belief in the One True God, and, of course, how she did Sisera in. I really wanted to see what happened to him when he returned to the main camp. To be honest I'm glad I didn't. Jael is presented with a life-changing decision, one that will affect all the people of Israel.
