A Passionate Hope is great fiction account of Hannah. If you like Biblical fiction, you will love this book!  With the story of Hannah coming alive, I felt hope come through as I was surrounded with the people and culture during this time. Hannah and Elkanah were real in my mind as I was traveling the pages with them and walking the roads, eating with them during the feasts or watching the sacrifices take place. What I love about reading this book is that it continues to help the Bible come to life for me, which is awesome because the Bible is alive!
The story of Hannah made me weep and grieve is so many ways. Hannah is unable to bear children and she wrestles with God during her years of barrenness. The very things that Hannah wrestles with, are the things that I too wrestle with, but what I am reminded through the book of Hannah and in this fiction book, that God does hear and see our prayers even when he is silent. 
This book was wonderful and it I just loved it! If you love great Biblical fiction, give Jill Eileen Smith a read! This book was amazing! I give this book 5/5 stars.
