Rachel and Leah is book three inNew York Timesbestselling author Orson Scott Card's Women of Genesis series--a unique reimagining of the biblical tale. Tracing their lives from childhood to maturity, Card shows how the women of Genesis change each other--and are changed again by the holy books that Jacob brings with him. Leah, the oldest daughter of Laban, whose "tender eyes" prevent her from fully participating in the daily work of her nomadic family, and Rachel, the spoiled younger daughter, the petted and privileged beauty of the family--or so it seems to Leah. There is also Bilhah, an orphan who is not quite a slave but not really a family member, a young woman desperately searching to fit in, and Zilpah, who knows only how to use her beauty to manipulate men as she strives to secure for herself something better than the life of drudgery and servitude into which she has been born. Into the desert camp comes Jacob, a handsome and charismatic kinsman who is clearly destined to be Rachel's husband. But that doesn't prevent the other women from vying for his attention. Ambition, jealousy, fear, and love motivate them as they vie for the attention of Jacob, heir to the spiritual birthright of Abraham and Isaac.

A part of me wishes this book had extended beyond the weddings, but I think OSC was smart in focusing on the buildup to it. These Bible stories are pretty similar, so another story about marriage to someone in Abraham's lineage would have felt repetitive. As always, this book was a fascinating character study. Card brings these people to life in a way that really feels believable. ( )

Sibling rivalry explained, on multiple levels. Because it's an on-going dimension in lots of scriptural stories.

Once again Mr. Card takes the bare bones of a story that has the feel of trickery and reframes it in such a way that I could understand how things could have turned out the way they did. The jealousies and loyalties and conflicting hopes and needs of the four different women who end up bearing Jacob's children intertwine in interesting ways. I ended up liking all of them, though I felt that Rachel was the person least explored. I'm sad that Mr. Card hasn't continued this series. ( )

Oh man was I disappointed to finish this novel and realize that there is a planned Part 2 with no real release date. This part 1 gets to Jacob's marriage to Leah, there's so much more to the story, and Card's talent in telling the tale is such, that I can't wait for Part 2. Come on Card, get a move on! ( )

After reading many OSC books including both Sarah and Rebekah, this one was a big disappointment. I wasn't able to sympathize with these characters who were whining and crying through the entire book. Every three pages someone's eyes were "filling with tears" over events and characters that were not thoroughly developed.

I realize that this must have been a very difficult book to write, considering that the characters and events have to be pretty constricted so they don't stray too far from history. However, I think he managed to pull it off a lot better in the first two books. ( )
