Where it Began – Prequel

Welcome! Thank you for downloading Where It Began. If you haven’t yet read The Struggle for Love: The Story of Leah, please read it first! It’s always more fun to watch a prequel AFTER you’ve watched the movie. The same is true of novels. So glad you’re here! 

If The Struggle for Love: The Story of Leah left you wanting more, you’ll love this look back at where it all began. The prequel begins with Abraham as he sends his servant to his homeland to find a wife for Isaac. It reveals the battle between Isaac’s twin sons, Jacob and Esau, a battle which begins in their mother’s womb and eventually drives Jacob to Haran where The Struggle for Love: The Story of Leah begins.

Leah’s backstory begins with her father trying to bethroth her to an old man who reminds Leah of one of the hogs in the pen behind their house. She suffers the death of her mother, her only advocate in a world that refuses to see her beautiful soul.

Where It Began is part of an early draft of the book, so there are a few overlapping scenes. I hope you enjoy this backward glance of the characters you loved in The Struggle for Love
