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.

Praise for Mesu Andrews! if you like biblical fiction, then this is for you. Andrews weaves a convincing tale about the wickedness of the daughter of Queen Jezebel whilst penning a true and passionate romance between Jehosheba and the high priest. While the romance was sometimes a tad sappy (Sheba was often weepy and insecure which was part of the character development) the romance between the high priest and princess was something to be coveted. Amidst a time of cruelty and manipulation, Mesu Andrews demonstrates what survival and unconditional love can be.
