Delilah, a newcomer to Gaza, is struggling to adapt to her new home when her stepfather dies. Cruelly mistreated by her stepbrother, Delilah escapes the Philistine city and takes up residence with a widow in the Valley of Sorek, where she eventually meets Samson the Israelite strongman. Could he help her avenge her losses? She discovers that she and Samson have much in common—both feel the sting of being different from others. After falling in love, Delilah must decide which she loves more: Samson or her dream of revenge.
Booklist starred review:
“Told through the dueling perspectives of Samson and Delilah, an approach she has used throughout the series, Hunt breathes brilliance into the dusty, mystical past. Her precise and purposeful details immerse the reader in the world of Gaza circa 1200 BCE in this fascinating, richly researched, and artfully composed biblical novel that explores the timeless themes of grief, hope, and betrayal.” — Kate Campos
