I am always a little cautious with books written about characters of the bible -- especially since I know the author will have to take liberties with what they think may have happened. However, I very much enjoyed this book as it did give me a different perspective on Sarai and what she may have had to deal with. It also gave me some valuable insight to the culture of that day. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.
