Have you read Hannah’s story in the Bible? Perhaps in Sunday school as a kid or in a sermon more recently as an adult? I’ve heard Hannah’s story a million different times, but I never connected to it until I read Jill Eileen Smith’s latest Biblical fiction novel, A Passionate Hope.
This book is exactly what it says it is: the story of deeply passionate people who never stop hoping for a miracle to happen.
Hannah, who was barren, waits patiently for God to grant her wish to have a child but not without some trials along the way. Having read this story, it’s only endeared me more to Hannah and I’ve learned so much just by reading this book.
For more details on my thoughts, I would love it if you would check out my video review of this book over on my YouTube channel!
