About this book

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.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I have read all of Mesu Andrews books and I Love them all! She is such an amazing writer!  In The Shadow of Jezebel is an especially interesting story for me because although I know about Jezebel, I had never read a lot about her in the Bible. Ms. Andrews weaves together a host of historical characters with a historical setting in Bible times of when this lady lived on earth. The vivid details of history during that time, along with the characters and they story she tells, I feel like I know Jezebel pretty well! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this Biblical figure and especially enjoyed watching the scenes come alive throughout the pages of this book. I know this is fiction, but even though it is a fictional story, it helps to understand how people lived their everyday lives back in those Bible times. I, for one, love reading Biblical fiction, and I highly recommend In The Shadow of Jezebel to those of you who enjoy historical and Biblical fiction. And if you don’t, I strongly encourage you to read this book just to see what you think! You will be pleasantly surprised!

I received this book from CFBA to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
