About the Book
Hadassah and Gidal love their parents and will do anything for them. When Priestess Basmat tell Ehud and Jerusha to pay their debt, they cannot and she takes Hadassah and Gidal as her slaves for two years.
The priestess works them hard, but there are two other servants to divide the load with, so they cope as well as they can. Then King Saul comes in disguise requesting the priestess’s other services—as a medium.
Will Hadassah and Gidal trust Adonai to take care of them? What will happen after Priestess Basmat comes face-to-face with the prophet Samuel?
About the Author
Faith Blum is a small-town Wisconsin girl. She’s lived in, or outside of, small towns her whole life. The thought of living in a city with more than 60,000 people in it scares her, especially after some interesting adventures driving through big cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Faith currently resides in the middle of the state of Wisconsin with her husband and their cat, Smokey. She is blessed to be able to have writing as her full-time career with household work and cooking to do on the side. She loves to paint walls as long as she doesn’t have to do hallways or ceilings.
When not writing, you can find her cooking food from scratch due to food allergies (fun), doing dishes (meh), knitting, crocheting, sewing, reading, or spending time with her husband (yay!). She is also a Community Assistant for the Young Writers Workshop and loves her work there. She loves to hear from her readers, so feel free to contact her on her website.
GiveawayFaith Blum is doing a giveaway with her blog tour. She is offering a paperback copy of Trust and Obey as well as a magnet with the cover on it! You can enter here.
The sky was dark when he arrived, but there were still a few people left in the streets and one of them noticed him.
“Jacin, this man needs help!” The woman shouted.
A man ran toward him and put a shoulder under his arm. “Come with me.”
“No,” Achim said. “You must help me.”
“No, the king.” He choked.
“Water,” Jacin said as he helped Achim sit on a rock.
Achim accepted the water and drank it thirstily. “King Saul. He’s dead. The Philistines took his body along with those of his sons. I don’t know where. You have to find them.”
Jacin knelt next to him. “I’m going to bring you to my home. My wife will care for you there. Then I will gather as many men as I can to go find King Saul. Put your mind at ease.”
Achim blinked once and nodded. “Thank you.”
Jacin was a man of his word and his wife took care of each of Achim’s wounds. Even the ones he didn’t know he had. The Philistines had done much to him during the brutal battle. He had slashes and cuts all over his body. By the time Jacin’s wife finished bandaging him, he wondered if there was a part of him that didn’t have a bandage on it.
“Now that that is over, would you like something to eat?”
Achim’s stomach growled. “Yes, please.”
Jacin’s wife smiled. “It will be ready in a moment.”
“What is your name?”
Achim smiled. “Like Jacob’s wife?”
Rachel nodded. “Yes.”
“It’s a pretty name.”
“Thank you.” She approached with a plate of food. “Eat hearty. I will be right back.”
Achim ate greedily rather than heartily. When he finished, he set the plate aside, lay down and fell fast asleep.
