In this epic Biblical narrative, ideal for fans of The Bible miniseries, a young woman taken into the prophet Isaiah's household rises to capture the heart of the future king.
Isaiah adopts Ishma, giving her a new name--Zibah, delight of the Lord--thereby ensuring her royal pedigree. Ishma came to the prophet's home, devastated after watching her family destroyed and living as a captive. But as the years pass, Zibah's lively spirit wins Prince Hezekiah's favor, a boy determined to rebuild the kingdom his father has nearly destroyed. But loving this man will awake in her all the fears and pain of her past and she must turn to the only One who can give life, calm her fears, and deliver a nation.
"Andrews (The Pharaoh’s Daughter) offers her unique brand of in-depth Bible knowledge and storytelling flair ... [she] is gifted at bringing the past to life..." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A Story about God's Heart and us
This book will make you want to review this time period again. You will think of these people as people who loves, hates and have hurts like the rest of us. I can not imagine all these things that Ishma witnessed. This story reminds us that God can take the bad that happens and make something good out of it. He is the one that is writing our stories. Our experiences can be used to help others in ways that we cannot even see.
Thank you Mesu for allowing me to be a part of this book's journey. It was not a coincidence that I am reading this book at this time in my life.
