Hannah: Mother of a Prophet by HB Moore - blog tour/giveaway


Hannah: Mother of a Prophet

Author: HB Moore

Publisher: Covenant

Published: June 6th, 2022

ebook/paperback: 256 pages

FTC FYI: I received an eARC, a review was not required. All views and opinions expressed are my own. 


Journey back in time to the dusty roads of Shiloh and witness anew the story of Hannah and her son, Samuel.
Hannah is no longer a young woman. In the twilight of her life, she holds her memories close to her heart. Above all, she treasures the miracle of conceiving Samuel after years of barrenness and the promise she made to the Lord to release her child to the high priest Eli’s care to train and serve in the temple. But Samuel’s story does not end at the gates of the temple and neither does his family’s enduring legacy of faith, patience, and deliverance. In this richly detailed and sweeping fictional account of Samuel’s life as a prophet in the making, discover how his mother, Hannah, made impossible decisions guided by her deep and abiding love of God.

My review

HB Moore’s historical novels are wonderfully well written, and Hannah is a wonderful addition. I loved this book. The way the story flows, it doesn’t feel like just another Bible story. The author does an amazing job of character development, with some added excitement of battles and family life. I loved the different POVs throughout but the ending was perfect with Hannah as the focus:

She cherished each memory, each family memory, and more importantly, she was grateful for a God who had always remembered her name.
There were many beautiful, tender moments in this book.

5 out of 5 stars.

With her token wit and candor, Ganel-Lyn helps readers learn to navigate through a reframing of life’s experiences, shifting them from issues of ownership to assignments of stewardship.
