Wisdom came as God’s gift, but sacred love was forged through passion’s fire

Standing in the shadow of his famous father, young King Solomon wavers between fear and bravado, longing for a love that is true and pure–a love that can be his cornerstone.

A shepherdess in the northern city of Shunem, Arielah has known since she first laid eyes on Solomon that it was her destiny to become his bride. When her father secures a promise from Solomon to marry Arielah as a treaty bride to help unite the kingdom, it seems her dreams will come true.

But how can this simple shepherdess live as part of Solomon’s harem? Can Solomon set aside his distractions to give himself completely to just one woman? Or will he let duty, deception, and the daily routine divide his heart?

Mesu Andrews expertly weaves the words of the Song of Solomon into this touching story of the power of love from a master storyteller.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Love’s Sacred Song  by Mesu Andrews

I was anxious to read this Biblical fiction based on the Song of Solomon, and my first book by Mesu Andrews and I can say I was not disappointed. “Love’s Sacred Song” is Solomon’s story. The author starts at the end of Solomon’s dad, David’s life, and the beginning of Solomon’s reign as King. Being a King, Solomon had many wives but he didn’t love any of them. That is until he meets Arielah, who had loved Solomon for years, and all she wanted was his heart, and to let him know what love really was. Their love didn’t come easy, the journey a very difficult one, which brought on a lot of hurt and pain, especially for Arielah.

 

This is a beautifully, well written story that came about from many hours of research by the author. Ms. Andrews gives the situations in detail, which was sometimes difficult to read, but it is truth, right from God’s Word. I love the way Mesu included mysterious and thriller situations to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The details of the setting of the story, the characters, and every scene so strongly draws the reader into the story it is almost as if you are right there, living the story with them. Reading “Love’s Sacred Song” makes the lives of Solomon and David come to life in a new and different way, and makes the reader want to read more Old Testament stories.

 

This story shows how God will use willing vessels, whoever it may be, for His glory. Even though Solomon, like his dad David, was anything but perfect, God loved him unconditionally and was willing to forgive him of his sinful life when he truly repented. This is a beautiful picture of God’s love for us, of how He extends His mercy and grace to us. Sometimes it was difficult to understand the attitude of Arielah, but yet she loved Solomon so much she was willing to endure anything to win his heart.

 

I highly recommend this book, especially to those who enjoy Biblical fiction. This is a story that will capture your heart and not let go for a good while after you finish reading the book. You will find that the investment in this book is well worth it, and the time it takes to read it is time well spent.
