Into the Hand of a Woman is a fictional adventure novel that revolves around the fictional character, Deborah Miller. Deborah, an American judge, takes a four-week sabbatical leave to go to Israel, after an encounter with Jordana, a woman of Jewish descent who was being divorced by her opportunistic husband with plans to leave her penniless. After salvaging the situation, Jordana explains to Deborah the situation in Israel and asks her to go save her sister, Jael. This she purposes to do to fight for the liberties of the women getting trafficked and sold off. According to Deborah and her belief in God, she felt the mystery of life seemed to be set before her in a mastery born only to God.

Barry, a man of integrity who had such respect for justice, is assigned to protect Deborah's life while in Israel. The only way the oppressed women at the tents can be saved is by Deborah teaming up with Sergeant Barry who also needs the backing of the military to bring down Sisera, a task that proves arduous. Will they succeed in releasing the tormented women from confinement?

Carla C.Ohse has created a very alluring storyline. I enjoyed it immensely. The main theme in the novel was resilience. Deborah stuck to her Christian faith despite the many setbacks she faced. Her several encounters with the evil Sisera and his inexcusably ill-mannered soldiers left her wounded severely and discouraged. The author has intertwined Christian faith, the gift to hear from God, and His purpose for humanity using the main character, Deborah.

In the Hand of a Woman has a touch of romance and is action-packed as the two main characters fight for justice in Israel. The author's prose is easy to understand and offers the reader a clear mental picture of the scenes. I loved the book in its entirety. I only found one error in the book, proof that it was well edited. I found nothing to dislike about the book in terms of the storyline, the vocabulary used, the themes raised, and the pace of the story. It hence achieves my rating of 4 out of 4 stars. The novel would highly appeal to teenagers and adults alike since it only contained minor profanity. It would also appeal to those who believe in a Higher power beyond what is seen in the universe. I look forward to reading more of the author's books.
