Delilah: Treacherous Beauty


Delilah's life is forever changed when her stepfather dies, leaving her mother and her, at the mercy of her stepbrother.  After struggling with the wrongs that were done to them, she is determined to seek revenge.  But seeking revenge, means that she will have to give up something very dear to her.  In the end, does revenge ever taste as sweet as it was thought to be?

Samson, wants all the things that other men want.  He wants a wife and a family of his own.  The problem is, Samson wasn't born an ordinary man.  He was born to help deliver Israel from the Philistines.  He knows what his calling is, but he can't help but feel different and feel that nobody understands him.  That is, until he meets Delilah.

Angela Hunt's novel Delilah, comes from the story of Samson and Delilah.  It was a fun read, based on the scriptural events found in the bible.  The author kept the facts, while adding fictional characters and details to this story.  The writing gives you a visual as to what people were wearing during that time, and really helped the biblical story come alive.  This would definitely be a novel that I would recommend.
