Samson and Delilah

"Delilah" by Angela Hunt is the  latest in the Dangerous Beauty Series.  Though Delilah has always been viewed as a sneaky, bad girl who threw Samson under a bus for the fun of it, this novel brings the question "why would she do that?" to mind.  Why?  "Delilah" takes the view of Delilah and Samson switching back and forth between each chapter.  This gives the reader a chance to see the point of view between each character.  Samson is an incredibly naive and overly-confident man while Delilah has been horrible abused and has absolutely nothing to loose and every thing to gain.
 As you know the story is the telling of a man with unnatural strength, the strength to kill a lion with his bare hands and the woman who he tells the secret as to why.  She of course gives it up to authorities who take away his strength. This is a novel though; it takes liberties that can be assumed from the bible story and adds historically accurate facts. I thought this was a great book and I highly recommend it.  I received this novel for free in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House.
