Lioness: Mahlah's Journey (Audiobook)
For her sisters she'll do anything...
I'm always a little skeptical when I try new-to-me Biblical fiction. There's just so much out there that is either not Biblically/historically accurate or the quality of writing is not the highest. I, had, however, heard good things about Barbara Britton so I went into listening to this Lioness with some hopes. I wasn't disappointed. Not only does this book bring forward a fascinating but little known story of the 5 sisters who changed history, a story I must have read but totally didn't remember, but it also brings insight into what it might have been like to be one of the Israelites who are on the cusp of entering the Promised Land after 40 years of desert wandering. I found Lioness to be interesting and entertaining and it left me looking for more of Barbara Britton's fiction.
With things being so different right now I've been listening more audiobooks, of which Lioness was one. I felt that the audio production was pretty good. The narrator was well chosen, she brought Barbara Britton's nineteen year old Mahlah to life. There were a few mispronounced words but they didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the audiobook. I'm definitely looking forward to listening to the next book in the Daughters of Zelophehad series.
