    Oh my goodness. This book, y'all. THIS. BOOK. Angela Hunt is an amazing author. Her style is so incredibly unique. I was blessed to have EGYPT'S SISTER and now I've been doubly blessed to get to read another incredibly moving, mind altering novel by the uberly talented Ms. Hunt. In ...

    I really enjoyed this book and the end was super bittersweet I was bawling my eyes out and trying to pretend I'm okay because my mom was like 5 feet away from me lol I will definitely be checking out Angela Hunt's first book because I loved her writing so much. This is supposed to be 4...

    I have always found it interesting that the time of Antiochus IV Epiphanes is prophesied in Daniel, and yet the account of the Maccabees? courageous stand against him is not part of the official Biblical canon (although it is a part of the Apocrypha in I & II Maccabees). The stor...

    I'm a toe-dabbling biblical fiction reader so I approach this genre with a bit of trepidation. Hence Judah's Wife sat on my TBR pile for a couple of weeks while I gathered the gumption to crack it open. And wouldn't you know it? Once I did, I couldn't stop reading. Seriously, I was ins...

    I didn't know much about the Maccabees before I read Judah's Wife, but I knew that I'd learn more about them through Hunt's writing, as she does great research. I wasn't disappointed in that regard (in fact, I kind of want to read First and Second Maccabees now). As always, Hunt's writ...

    Recently, I found myself very interested in understanding the origins of Hanukkah. So I started looking at historical texts like the Books of Maccabees and the writings of Josephus, and I looked for lots of helps from others in understanding these ancient documents. Providentially, rig...

    This book follows Leah, the daughter of a merchant in Jerusalem, in her marriage to Judah Maccabaeus, the son of Mattathias (from 1 Maccabees in the Apocrypha). Leah grew up with an abusive father, so she is grateful to be able to leave with Judah, but at the same time she struggles be...

    I am studying salvation history in my bible study, and during one session, we talked about the brave Maccabees, who lead a courageous and ultimately successful resistance to violent suppression of their religion by their Seleuicid rulers. So I was very interested in reading Judah's wif...

    There's much I could say, and if you love the Biblical, historical side of stories, then you may very well enjoy this one. I encourage you to give it a try! I just could not get into it. Leah was an absolute brat, in my opinion, and annoyed me to no end. I found myself wanting to slap ...

    Wow! What a tremendously powerful novel this was - This book is proof that fiction can convey deep truths within story. I came to Judah's Wife not really knowing what to expect. I don't think that I've read anything by Angela Hunt - at least nothing novel-sized - and I nearly passed b...

    They say this movement springs from the great Alexander, who wanted to unite the world into one race and one people. But he failed, as all men will fail if they attempt a task only HaShem can perform. How can a man unite the world when Adonai has set people apart. We are the seed of Ab...

    The second novel in "The Silent Years" series is every bit as fascinating and absorbing as the first, "Egypt's Sister". Angela Hunt's historical detail will transport you back in time until you will feel like you are walking the streets of Jerusalem at Leah's side, or breathing in the ...

    Leah never felt safe in the home she grew up in. So when she marries a kind man named Judah, she believes she can finally experience a life of peace. But when Judah is challenged to fight for his people's sacred way of life, Leah's hopes for peace are threatened in Judah's Wife: A Nove...

    I love Biblical fiction. Not only does it inspire and entertain me, but it also gives me a strong sense of the customs and practices of those living during ancient times. Judah?s Wife, by Angela Hunt, is the second book in The Silent Years series. It has such a spiritual feel, an...

    The time between the Old and New Testament is often called the Silent Years because during that time God did not speak through a prophet to His people. This was the time of the Greeks, the rise of the Romans, the fall of the Egyptians. We might not have a biblical account but we do hav...

    i really enjoyed this book. So good! This was my first book by this author but it will not be my last. ...

    Angela Hunt's story about Judah's Wife shows the transforming power of God's love. Leah, raised in an abusive home, longs for peace. When her husband, Judah, is called to lead the Maccabees she tries to stop him from going to war. I was frustrated with Leah when she refused to understa...

    Judah's Wife: A Novel of the Maccabees is the second book in "The Silent Years" series (though unrelated to the first, as far as I can tell) written by Angela Hunt. Judah's Wife takes place during the four hundred years between the Old and New Testaments, and tells the stories of a tee...

    This second novel set in what Christians generally refer to as the Inter-testamental period was interesting. Many Western Evangelicals have not read and will not touch the Old Testament Apocrypha, believing it to be heretical in some way (no doubt as a result of confusion with some o...

    When you write a book that takes place in what we Christians call, ?The Silent Years,? there?s so much room for creativity, freedom, and possibility in the story. Angela Hunt has, once again, not disappointed me. Being that I know next to nothing about the Maccabees, or Judah M...

    Judah?s Wife: A Novel of the Maccabees is the second book in The Silent Years series. I?ve enjoyed previous books by Angela Hunt and was excited to have an opportunity to read more. The Silent Years series are not connected to each other, so you don?t need to read the first one p...

    http://www.jamiswords.com/judahs-wife... Judah's Wife is a story revolved around the historical significance of the Maccabees and the fight to save the Jewish faith before the time of Christ. The story of the Maccabees takes place during the "silent" 400 years between the Old and Ne...

    Judah?s Wife is a retelling of the Maccabean revolt. The story is focused on the romance of Judah Maccabeus and his wife Leah. Leah is the abused daughter of a merchant. She sells cheese in the market stalls. When she is attacked by a group of young men in the market, a young man nam...

    Angela Hunt holds the distinction of being one of my favorite authors, consistently delivering captivating characters and page-turning plots that keep me coming back for more. With that caveat, while there is much to like within the pages of Judah's Wife, I found myself unable to conne...

    This book follows Leah, the daughter of a merchant in Jerusalem, in her marriage to Judah Maccabaeus, the son of Mattathias (from 1 Maccabees in the Apocrypha). Leah grew up with an abusive father, so she is grateful to be able to leave with Judah, but at the same time she struggles be...

    I didn't know much about the Maccabees before I read Judah's Wife, but I knew that I'd learn more about them through Hunt's writing, as she does great research. I wasn't disappointed in that regard (in fact, I kind of want to read First and Second Maccabees now). As always, Hunt's writ...

    This book follows Leah, the daughter of a merchant in Jerusalem, in her marriage to Judah Maccabaeus, the son of Mattathias (from 1 Maccabees in the Apocrypha). Leah grew up with an abusive father, so she is grateful to be able to leave with Judah, but at the same time she struggles be...

    Angela Hunt holds the distinction of being one of my favorite authors, consistently delivering captivating characters and page-turning plots that keep me coming back for more. With that caveat, while there is much to like within the pages of Judah's Wife, I found myself unable to conne...

    I?m going to be honest. I don?t even know how to start this review. With everything that has happened in my personal life over the last month I heeded Kristin?s advice when she suggested that I put off reading this book. She didn?t say why but just encouraged me that now wasn?...

    Okay, let me just start out by saying I LOVED this book! Seriously, I have recommended this book to so many people. This book has many things I haven't found in a book in a long time. I felt a mixture of emotions while reading this book, and I just plain could NOT put this book down. Y...

    I was actually hesitant to read this book at first because the other books I've read by this author were not favourites. But since this one was about the Maccabees, I was very intrigued and willing to give it a chance. Happily, I didn't find it to be like the other books I'd read previ...

    This book follows Leah, the daughter of a merchant in Jerusalem, in her marriage to Judah Maccabaeus, the son of Mattathias (from 1 Maccabees in the Apocrypha). Leah grew up with an abusive father, so she is grateful to be able to leave with Judah, but at the same time she struggles be...

    There's much I could say, and if you love the Biblical, historical side of stories, then you may very well enjoy this one. I encourage you to give it a try! I just could not get into it. Leah was an absolute brat, in my opinion, and annoyed me to no end. I found myself wanting to slap ...

    Wow! What a tremendously powerful novel this was - This book is proof that fiction can convey deep truths within story. I came to Judah's Wife not really knowing what to expect. I don't think that I've read anything by Angela Hunt - at least nothing novel-sized - and I nearly passed b...

    Leah never felt safe in the home she grew up in. So when she marries a kind man named Judah, she believes she can finally experience a life of peace. But when Judah is challenged to fight for his people's sacred way of life, Leah's hopes for peace are threatened in Judah's Wife: A Nove...

    When you write a book that takes place in what we Christians call, ?The Silent Years,? there?s so much room for creativity, freedom, and possibility in the story. Angela Hunt has, once again, not disappointed me. Being that I know next to nothing about the Maccabees, or Judah M...

    Angela Hunt holds the distinction of being one of my favorite authors, consistently delivering captivating characters and page-turning plots that keep me coming back for more. With that caveat, while there is much to like within the pages of Judah's Wife, I found myself unable to conne...

    I?m going to be honest. I don?t even know how to start this review. With everything that has happened in my personal life over the last month I heeded Kristin?s advice when she suggested that I put off reading this book. She didn?t say why but just encouraged me that now wasn?...

    Okay, let me just start out by saying I LOVED this book! Seriously, I have recommended this book to so many people. This book has many things I haven't found in a book in a long time. I felt a mixture of emotions while reading this book, and I just plain could NOT put this book down. Y...

    I was actually hesitant to read this book at first because the other books I've read by this author were not favourites. But since this one was about the Maccabees, I was very intrigued and willing to give it a chance. Happily, I didn't find it to be like the other books I'd read previ...

    There's much I could say, and if you love the Biblical, historical side of stories, then you may very well enjoy this one. I encourage you to give it a try! I just could not get into it. Leah was an absolute brat, in my opinion, and annoyed me to no end. I found myself wanting to slap ...

    Wow! What a tremendously powerful novel this was - This book is proof that fiction can convey deep truths within story. I came to Judah's Wife not really knowing what to expect. I don't think that I've read anything by Angela Hunt - at least nothing novel-sized - and I nearly passed b...

    They say this movement springs from the great Alexander, who wanted to unite the world into one race and one people. But he failed, as all men will fail if they attempt a task only HaShem can perform. How can a man unite the world when Adonai has set people apart. We are the seed of Ab...

    The second novel in "The Silent Years" series is every bit as fascinating and absorbing as the first, "Egypt's Sister". Angela Hunt's historical detail will transport you back in time until you will feel like you are walking the streets of Jerusalem at Leah's side, or breathing in the ...

    Leah never felt safe in the home she grew up in. So when she marries a kind man named Judah, she believes she can finally experience a life of peace. But when Judah is challenged to fight for his people's sacred way of life, Leah's hopes for peace are threatened in Judah's Wife: A Nove...

    I love Biblical fiction. Not only does it inspire and entertain me, but it also gives me a strong sense of the customs and practices of those living during ancient times. Judah?s Wife, by Angela Hunt, is the second book in The Silent Years series. It has such a spiritual feel, an...

    The time between the Old and New Testament is often called the Silent Years because during that time God did not speak through a prophet to His people. This was the time of the Greeks, the rise of the Romans, the fall of the Egyptians. We might not have a biblical account but we do hav...

    i really enjoyed this book. So good! This was my first book by this author but it will not be my last. ...

    Angela Hunt's story about Judah's Wife shows the transforming power of God's love. Leah, raised in an abusive home, longs for peace. When her husband, Judah, is called to lead the Maccabees she tries to stop him from going to war. I was frustrated with Leah when she refused to understa...

    Judah's Wife: A Novel of the Maccabees is the second book in "The Silent Years" series (though unrelated to the first, as far as I can tell) written by Angela Hunt. Judah's Wife takes place during the four hundred years between the Old and New Testaments, and tells the stories of a tee...

    This second novel set in what Christians generally refer to as the Inter-testamental period was interesting. Many Western Evangelicals have not read and will not touch the Old Testament Apocrypha, believing it to be heretical in some way (no doubt as a result of confusion with some o...

    When you write a book that takes place in what we Christians call, ?The Silent Years,? there?s so much room for creativity, freedom, and possibility in the story. Angela Hunt has, once again, not disappointed me. Being that I know next to nothing about the Maccabees, or Judah M...
