AboutIn 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.

The author Mesu Andrews has written a book about a woman overcoming all obstacles in her way by being strong. Queen Athaliah is the daughter of Jezebel, a very demanding Queen and wants everyone to work to please her. Jehosheba has been made to marry Yahweh's high priest by force.
When Johosheba enters the temple she is uncertain what she should do or not do. She looks to her new husband for guidance. When she is again forced by others to face her fears head on, can she save her family in time? This is a wonderful story that is written with a lot of passion. We are shown what real love can do. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by Revell Publishing Group and all opinions are my own.
