Desired by Ginger Garrett

One of my favorite authors, Ginger Garrett, has a new novel releasing October 1st entitled Desired: The Untold Story of Samson and Delilah. I ran across the book trailer a few days ago, and since the release date is getting pretty close I thought I'd share it with you. I think the trailer is just lovely, one of the better ones I've seen produced!



And if that didn't whet your appetite here's the back cover summary:

Meet the legendary Samson as you've never known him before, through the eyes of the three women who loved him.

Before Samson was an Old Testament legend, he was a prodigal son, an inexperienced suitor, a vengeful husband, and a lost soul driven by his own weakness. This is his story as told by three strong women who loved him-the nagging, manipulative mother who pushed him toward greatness, the hapless Philistine bride whose betrayal propelled him into notoriety, and the emotionally damaged seductress-the famous Delilah-who engineered his downfall and propelled him to his destiny. Desired celebrates the God of Israel's to work powerfully in the midst of hopes, fears, desires, and sorrows.

Ooh! This looks like it has a lot of potential. If you read it when it comes out, be sure and review it because I'm very interested. :)

I started to read this authors take on the story of Anne Boleyn and... I thought her style of writing was... different. Anyway, I never finished it, but this cover is lovely and telling this story certainly makes the book sound interesting.

@Rissi - I LOVED her take on Anne Boleyn! Sounds like it wasn't quite your cup of tea, though. :/ You might like her Biblical fiction a bit better (keeping my fingers crossed!). :)

Perhaps I should give the author another try. I just didn't like her style of writing - I really wanted to finish the book because it was around the same time as "The Tudors" popularity, but I just couldn't get past Ginger Garrett's writing. Perhaps you are right, Ruth - maybe I would like these books better. And, I do LOVE the story of Esther. =D

@Rissi - Hey, sometimes you just don't "click" with an author -- I get that (it's happened to me on occasion LOL!). You could definitely check out her Esther book, or 'Dark Hour' (that was my first read by her).
