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.
About The Author:
Mesu Andrews is the author of Love Amid the Ashes and is an active speaker who has devoted herself to passionate and intense study of Scripture. Harnessing her deep understanding and love for God’s Word, Andrews brings the biblical world vividly alive for her readers. She lives in Washington.
Masterful, once again! Mesu Andrews has created a retelling of the Song of Solomon in a way that is fictional, yet truthful and absolutely MORE than captivating! After reading Ms. Andrews’ first novel, Love Amid The Ashes, I saw her skilled talent for Biblical fiction writing. I saw the way she blended characters that came straight from the Bible, and added the realistic fiction aspects to create an engaging story that sweeps the reader into another place in history. Stunning!
Not only did I get swept away by the creation of this story, I was taken into the heart of the Bible, as I had to reference my Bible more than once on things I didn’t remember reading before. It was double bonus for me, as it brought me closer to my Creator. I don’t read a lot of books that can do that, but once I’ve come across one….look out!
In Love’s Sacred Song, Arielah and King Solomon jump vibrantly into the readers’ hearts. Taken on their love journey with them, and the time that Kind Solomon reigned on the throne, you become a part of them. You see life through both Arielah and King Solomon’s eyes.
Ms. Andrews telling of the journey that Arielah and Solomon took was incredible. It’s a life of love and sacrifice; hope, honor, and trusting in God to lead the way. A love that is withstanding and strong. This story brought a whole new meaning to the word “true love” to me. With God, there is always a way, even a way to true, long lasting love. Arielah and Solomon are prove of that sacred tie.
If you are looking for a light, quick read, then I suggest you turn away from this book. But, if you are looking for an incredibly moving, 5 Book worthy read that will twist your heart and make you think, then grab up this book now. It’s worth the time to read and while it is Biblical fiction, it’s absolutely amazing. I am glad to be a Mesu Andrews fan and will forever have these books on my shelf. I can’t wait for the next book by this fabulatastic author!
