Tracy L. Higley is celebrating the release of The Queen's Handmaid with a fun giveaway.

Retailers + Resources gave it this glowing review: "Rich in historic detail, Higley’s vivid writing brings to life the plots and intrigues that swirled through the ancient world as alliances were built and broken on the calculated schemes of power-mad monarchs."

About the Book
The Queen’s Handmaid From the servant halls of Cleopatra’s Egyptian palace to the courts of Herod the Great, Lydia will serve two queens to see prophecy fulfilled.
Alexandria, Egypt 39 BC
Orphaned at birth, Lydia was raised as a servant in Cleopatra’s palace, working hard to please while keeping everyone at arm’s length. She’s been rejected and left with a broken heart too many times in her short life.
But then her dying mentor entrusts her with secret writings of the prophet Daniel and charges her to deliver this vital information to those watching for the promised King of Israel. Lydia must leave the nearest thing she’s had to a family and flee to Jerusalem. Once in the Holy City, she attaches herself to the newly appointed king, Herod the Great, as handmaid to Queen Mariamme.
Trapped among the scheming women of Herod’s political family—his sister, his wife, and their mothers—and forced to serve in the palace to protect her treasure, Lydia must deliver the scrolls before dark forces warring against the truth destroy all hope of the coming Messiah.

My review;
 
 This is a wonderful historical novel. Lydia, a handmaid to the Queen of Egypt Cleopatra has found herself in the middle of a huge undertaking. It has fallen on her to return to Jerusalem with the writings that were done in secret by Daniel. There are many who want to destroy these scrolls and destroy the future of the Israelites, that is now in her hands.  There are many twists and turns that I was very surprised at. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Book  Tout and KINDLE HDX.  I give this book a 4/5 and all opinions are my own.
