New biblical fiction release
So we woke up to ice and snow here in middle Tennessee today. I was brave though and hit the roads and got into work just fine. There are only 3 of us here in my entire department! I gotta tell you, it’s eerily quiet! I hope you are warm and safe in your corner of the world today.
Mesu Andrews is one of my top 5 favorite authors and she has just released In the Shadow of Jezebel. It will be the next book I dive into and I can’t wait! Her novels bring biblical stories to life.
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.
