Abraham and Sarah by Roberta Kells Dorr

I enjoy historical fiction, and I consider Biblical fiction to fall into that category.  I feel the best historical fiction is historically correct and accurate.  With that said, I was disappointed by "Abraham and Sarah" by Roberta Kells Dorr.

Although some of the author's creativity made for an interesting story, I found her changes to the actual Biblical account to be frustrating.  I have read another book about Hagar that made her to be a daughter of one of Pharaoh's concubines, so was disappointed at that theory being revisited in this book. 

If you are reading this book just as a story, I think you would really enjoy the book.  If you are reading it and know the Biblical account of Abraham and Sarah, I cannot promise the same.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
