Delilah: Treacherous Beauty (A Dangerous Beauty Novel) by Angela Hunt

This is the story of Samson & Delilah told in Angela Hunt's own unique style. It remains true to the Biblical account, but is fleshed out with additional characters and lots of historical / cultural insight. Delilah is betrayed by a step-brother and begins her own personal journey for justice. Samson is the Judge in Israel that travels around where Delilah is living. The story of how they became involved and how it led to the conclusion that we see in the Bible account is relayed through Angela Hunt's wonderful, imaginative telling of this tale. Delilah doesn't look like quite as much of a villain as she is usually portrayed, and the reader has a little more kind feeling toward her in spite of the conclusion.

Bethany House provided me with a copy of this book for the purpose of an honest review.
