A Lineage of Grace series

By Francine Rivers. This series includes five novellas about “unlikely women who changed eternity.” Rivers has beautifully filled out (in fiction form) the stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth Bathsheba and Mary, the mother of Jesus. I loved these books (and so did my 13-year-old daughter) for the way the lives of these ancestors of Jesus came alive. All are told from their own point of view. A study is included at the end of each book.
