Summary

A Complex and Compelling Glimpse at One of the Bible's Baddest Girls

Life is not easy in Philistia, especially not for a woman and child alone. When beautiful, wounded Delilah finds herself begging for food to survive, she resolves that she will find a way to defeat all the men who have taken advantage of her. She will overcome the roadblocks life has set before her, and she will find riches and victory for herself.

When she meets a legendary man called Samson, she senses that in him lies the means for her victory. By winning, seducing, and betraying the hero of the Hebrews, she will attain a position of national prominence. After all, she is beautiful, she is charming, and she is smart. No man, not even a supernaturally gifted strongman, can best her in a war of wits.

Sad but intriguing<br />

A unique way of telling the well known story of Samson and Delilah which captivated me from beginning to its sad conclusion

another good book

Very well written and I enjoyed the narration. Still would have been worth at least 10 stars if the narration was a true dual narration. Women can not do men voices and vice versa. But they still brought this story to life. Well worth a buy or a credit. You will be missing out if you do not get this one..

Inasmuch as this has some tints of fiction ... there seems to be so much truth weaved into the story. i like how u cld picture the story as if that is the way things happened.

Light, easy read

This is a work of fiction based on the Bible account of Samson and Delilah. The story line was ok as stories go, I had issues with the readers. Samson did not match my minds eye of Samson.

New Ensight

I’ve read the story of Samson and Delilah countless times and have never thought of the fact that there may have been forces coercing Delilah to make the choices she made. I love how God can use our weaknesses for God’s on purpose. While will never know for sure what the heart of Delilah was, she is definitely demonize usually, and this is an interesting take on the story and I enjoyed it immensely.

<br />interesting backstory

Angela's way of telling this biblical story is true in some forms and well-engineered in others. It is interesting to see how she has devised a backstory so well thought out.

Not really worth your time

Author works too hard to stretch the story into one that justifies Delilah's actions. Narration is so-so.
