Three women loved him. Two betrayed him. One fulfilled his destiny.
Desired tells the story of the legendary strongman through the eyes of the three most important women in his life. The fiercely loving Jewish mother who nags him toward greatness … and rebellion. The impoverished Philistine girl, Amara, who becomes Samson’s bride. And the emotionally damaged seductress-the legendary Delilah-who becomes the instrument of his destruction and the key to his tragic triumph. Poetic, meticulously researched, and jaw-droppingly honest, Desired ultimately celebrates the God of Israel’s ability to work mightily despite our human weakness.
“Everyone who likes historical fiction will enjoy Desired. Vivid and compelling-I loved it!”
-India Edghill, author of Wisdom’s Daughter and Delilah: A Novel
