About the Book
Title: In the Shadow of Jezebel
Author: Mesu Andrews
Publication Date: March 4, 2014
Print Length: 417 pages
Princess Jehosheba wants nothing more than to please the harsh and demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of the notorious Queen Jezebel. Her work as a priestess in the temple of Baal seems to do the trick. 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 beyond the realm of earthly governments. To further Athaliah and Jezebel's strategies, she is forced to marry Yahweh's high priest and 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 Old Testament passages to life, revealing a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love.
My Review of this Book
Mesu Andrews once again throws the reader straight into the heart of Old Testament times, making you feel like you are right there with them, experiencing every moment, every emotional high and low, and dramatic scenes of action. Her depictions of the life and times never fail to draw the reader in, and with In the Shadow of Jezebel, this is no exception. At a time of great turmoil in Israel’s history, the story is brought alive through the eyes of Sheba and Jehoiada. There is NO way any fan of Biblical fiction should miss this one!
