How long must she wait? Rebekah’s brother, Laban, is taking his time in choosing a husband for her. Because of her brother’s greed, Rebekah fears she will not marry a man of character, but rather, a man of station that can fill her brother’s pockets.
Yet, God in his sovereignty, provides a way for her to marry a man whom her brother approves of and also possesses great character.
Upon meeting and marrying, their love grows and flourishes until the time approaches for their twins to be born. Rebekah has heard from God in a vision that the older will serve the younger. This goes against all tradition!
She must do something to bring this to pass and convince Isaac that she truly did see a vision! If she doesn’t, this prophecy will not be fulfilled.
All this doing and trying. At what cost? Will she ever regain the love of her beloved?
Rebekah is the second book in the Wives of the Patriarchs series. “Enter a world where love isn’t always what it seems, and sincere longings can lead to devastating choices. Meet Sarai, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah, all amidst a backdrop of deceit and control and a struggle to make a united family. Sometimes we must be careful what we wish for, as many of these matriarchs discovered much too well.” 1
