Book Description:

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

My Thoughts:

Have you ever wondered about the woman of the book Song of Solomon in the Bible? I have and if you have this is the book to read.

The story of of Solomon’s Shulummite wife, a shepherdess from the the northern tribes of Israel. You see an arranged marriage turn to on of love and joy. Arielah becomes one of the many wives of King Solomon.

She is mocked and scorned by the other wives, until someone hires a group of soldiers to attack her when she looks for Solomon. She leaves the palace to go home with her parents to rest and heal. She awaits word from her husband but none comes. One day he comes riding to her parents home and takes her back home with her. There she dies while giving birth to their child.

A love story with a little suspense and mystery. A good read for anyone who enjoys biblical novels.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. These are my words and thoughts 100%.
