From the Back Cover
In a kingdom controlled by cruel and manipulative women, one princess will discover the power of truth and love.
Trained as a priestess in the temple of Baal, Princess Jehosheba strives to please the demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of Jezebel. But when a mysterious letter from the dead prophet Elijah predicts doom for the royal household, Jehosheba realizes that the dark arts she practices reach far beyond the realm of earthly governments.
Forced to marry Yahweh's high priest in order to further Athaliah and Jezebel's power plays, Jehosheba enters the unfamiliar world of Yahweh's Temple. Can her new husband show her the truth and love she craves? And can Jehosheba overcome her fear and save the family--and the nation--she loves?
With deft skill, Mesu Andrews brings the Old Testament to life, revealing a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love.

In this book of Amazingness..yes, that's a word. The way she created an image of the abuse Sheba endured and Athailah's manipulation had me in tears. I read this book in 4 days. That's how amazing it was. It was one thing after another. I'm just counting the 6 months until Isaiah's daughter is released!
Mesu Andrews's books are lovingly researched and always lead me back to read the Biblical account. I always end up asking myself, "how did I miss that?" The daughter of the weak King of Judah (who's queen is Athaliah daughter of Israel's Queen Jezebel) married to Yahweh's high priest? Yet, among all the pagan rituals and idol worship of the day, God works His divine purpose, preserving a nation and a people, through unlikely means.
Mesu's amazing storytelling ability is perfectly showcased in this story helping us to understand the characters and visualize the settings. I was fascinated by glimpses of the wicked queens Jezebel and Athalial. I sympathized with the fear and uncertainty of Princess Jehosheba and routed for her to accept the love of God and her high priest husband! I was captivated by this story of redemption and love!
I highly recommend this beautiful book. It's a page-turner you won't want to end!
