Review:Desired (the untold story of Samson&Delilah) by:Ginger Garrett

Desired: The Untold Story of Samson and Delilah (Lost Loves of the Bible #1)
About the Book:
Before Samson was an Old Testament legend, he was a prodigal son, an inexperienced suitor, a vengeful husband, and a lost soul driven by his own weakness. This is his story as told by three strong women who loved him—the nagging, manipulative mother who pushed him toward greatness, the hapless Philistine bride whose betrayal propelled him into notoriety, and the emotionally damaged seductress—the famous Delilah—who engineered his downfall and propelled him to his destiny. Desired celebrates the God of Israel's to work powerfully in the midst of hopes, fears, desires, and sorrows.

My Review:
 I think if you have ever studied the Bible long enough, you would certainly know the story of Samson and Delilah. In Ginger Garrett's book, Desired, the untold story of Samson&Delilah you are sure to get the best fictionally story based on historic fact that is Biblical based. This story is written through the eyes of three different women that were very much a part of Samson's life, his mother, Amara-his wife, and Delilah-the seductress. Written in this way we say how they felt about the man and his mission in life. And how each of them played a very important role in how his life was shaped and lived out.

 Ginger Garrett has put together a rather dark, dreary story about Samson. She is a very well versed author that makes her novels rich with character and history.
