After his destruction of the Canaanite palace and town of Hazor, Barak frees the Israelites who have been slaves to the Canaanites and takes the Canaanite princess Ashera to his home to become his bride. In the group of Israeli women who Barak hires to wrk in his home is Nogah, daughter of Canaanite King Jabin by on of his Israeli slaves. The story of their complicated love-triangle and how it brings about the peace contract is interesting and amazing.
The Triumph of Deborah. I found it amazingly relevant to our world today, with familiar jealousies, pride, and questions about gender roles.
